Videos: Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair — Opening remarks to the class on Faith and Globalization and a Talk at Woolsey Hall

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair taught his first class at Yale on September 19, marking the start of the “Faith and Globalization Initiative,” a three-year collaboration among Yale’s Divinity School, School of Management and the Tony Blair Faith Foundation.

The potential of religious faith to bring the world’s people together rather than drive them apart will be explored through the seminar and made available to a world audience through the Faith and Globalization website.

Later that day, Mr. Blair joined University President Richard C. Levin, Professor Paul Kennedy and student Lita Tandon for a conversation in Woolsey Hall before an audience of Yale faculty, students and staff.
