Last year, the Community Security Trust recorded 1,309 anti-semitic incidents, including 307 violent instances of anti-semitism, higher than any year since the Trust began recording the phenomena. In this panel event, the Forum on Geopolitics will explore why anti-Semitism is on the rise in Britain, its impact on the British political climate and how best to tackle this noxious trend.

Decline reading group end of term report

Jun 26, 2017

In 2017 the Forum on Geopolitics convened a reading group for a series of eight discussions titled: ‘From Thucydides to Trump. Decline in History.’ The reading group investigated the causes of the decline of nations, empires and civilizations, bringing together participants from the fields of history, law, business, public policy, urban studies, physics, and ecology. The group read texts by Herodotus, Thucydides, Plato, Ibn Khaldun, Machiavelli, Rousseau, Hegel, Nietzsche, and social theorist Joseph Tainter. The texts were chosen for their theoretical power, intellectual rigour, and capacity to shed light on the state of the world in the twenty-first century. In a future effort, the Forum hopes to expand its scope of inquiry by addressing the problem of developing grand strategy in the context of decline.
