This event will look at peace-making in the 21st century and the lessons learnt from attempts to stabilise Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. It will map out the new conflict environment and the rise of non-state actors and proxy forces through a prism of Syrian and Yemen conflicts including looking at the role of Iran. It will also consider the role played by the UN Security Council in preventing conflict.
