Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is set to receive an honorary degree from the Irish Queen’s University of Belfast, the Belfast Telegraph reports.
The school will award Clinton a Doctor of Laws degree for her “exceptional public service in the USA and globally,” and her “outstanding” work to bring peace and reconciliation to Northern Ireland. Clinton will give an address at the honorary degree ceremony on October 10, 2018.
“We are delighted to award an honorary degree to Hillary Rodham Clinton. The former US Secretary of State is an internationally recognized public servant, who has developed strong links with Queen’s and Northern Ireland,” said Ian Greer, Queen’s University President and Vice-Chancellor.
“She made a considerable contribution to the Northern Ireland Peace Process and, as Secretary of State, focused on economic development to underpin the emergence of a strong and competitive Northern Ireland,” he continued.
“With her long-standing commitment to peace, stability and economic regeneration, she is a strong advocate for Northern Ireland and an inspirational role model for the Queen’s community.”
