Gallery Link: MEETING WITH GERMAN CHANCELLOR ANGELA MERKEL | BERLIN GERMANY | FEBRUARY 12

Taking a break from promoting his latest film, “Hail, Caesar!,” in Germany, George Clooney and his wife, Amal Clooney, paid a visit to Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday.  The actor-activist and the human-rights attorney sat down for a private meeting with Merkel to discuss the crisis in Syria and Europe’s efforts to help the Middle Eastern nation’s refugees, the Associated Press reported. They talked about “the responsibilities of all states, not just European states but states around the world, to deal with what is a global problem, not just a Syrian problem or a German issue,” said former British foreign secretary David Miliband, who now helms the International Rescue Committee aid group and joined the couple for the 40-minute sit-down.

The new ‘Amal Clooney Scholarship’ is part of an ongoing effort by 100 LIVES – the organization behind the Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity – to strengthen cross-cultural education and understanding through collaborative social and philanthropic projects.
