2008 World Food Prize Events During Global Food Crisis

In October 2008, Ambassador Quinn presided at a series of events over a 5-day period, including the Borlaug Dialogue Symposium and other events open to the public. The week began with a public lecture at the Iowa State Historical Museum, during which Laureate Catherine Bertini interviewed Senators George McGovern and Robert Dole, the 2008 Laureates. Ambassador Quinn served as the Master of Ceremonies throughout the Borlaug Dialogue and also conducted a one-on-one interview with World Bank President Ambassador Robert Zoellick. That conversation came at the height of the Global Food Crisis and represented a major presentation by one of the two world leaders dealing with this major disruption. Sylvia Matthews Burwell, then head of the Gates Foundation Global Health and Agriculture Initiative, also deliver a keynote address at the Dialogue.
