REGISTER NOW FOR THE FINAL SEMINAR IN PHASE ONE OF 'A WESTPHALIA FOR THE MIDDLE EAST'

What if everything you think you know about Westphalia is wrong, and these misconceptions – shared by policymakers the world over – contribute daily to the seemingly intractable tangle of conflicts consuming the modern Middle East?

The 'Westphalia for the Middle East' seminar series has been convened by Dr Patrick Milton (Berlin), Prof. Brendan Simms (Cambridge) and Dr Michael Axworthy (Exeter), who also acts as chairperson.

This seminar will take place at King's College London (Strand Campus) from 2pm on Wednesday 11 May 2016.

Keynote speaker: Jonathan Powell

Organised by the Forum on Geopolitics (Dept. of Politics and International Studies, University of Cambridge), in co-operation with the Department of War Studies, King’s College London.

Supported by:

  • The DAAD Cambridge Research Hub with funds from the Federal Foreign Office (FFO)
  • Institution Quraysh for Law & Policy
