As the first woman President of Ireland, Mary elevated the country to a new level of international status, by fighting for controversial changes and bridging religious, social and economic groups. She placed special emphasis during her Presidency on the needs of developing countries, linking the history of the Great Irish Famine to today's nutrition, poverty and policy issues, thus creating a bridge of partnership between developed and developing countries.

Since leaving the UN in 2002, Robinson has been Honorary President of Oxfam International, she is Chair of the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED)and is also a founding member and Chair of the Council of Women World Leaders.  A favoured project is Realizing Rights: the Ethical Globalization Initiative, which promotes equitable trade and development, more humane migration policies and better responses to HIV/AIDS in Africa.
