LSE Public Lecture
Date: Thursday 6 May 2004
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Professor Fred Halliday
Chair: Howard Davies
Professor Halliday will examine the central issues underlying the Iraq war and its consequences, and the role of academic specialists in relation to these events. He will argue that, whatever past disagreements, the wish of most Iraqis today is for a continued, responsible and attentive western engagement with the consolidation of a new political and economic order in their country. This is a political, and intellectual, obligation.
Professor Fred Halliday is a professor of international relations at LSE. He has written eight books on the Middle East, including the forthcoming Politics, Power and International Relations in the Middle East (CUP, Nov 2004). He is a former convenor of the Department of International Relations at LSE and a member of the Advisory Council of the Labour Party's Foreign Policy Centre.
