Speaker information

Rt Hon Jack Straw MP, Visiting Professor, School of Public Policy, UCL

Having served as Foreign Secretary between 2001 and 2006 Rt Hon Jack Straw MP is uniquely placed to address some of the central international issues and foreign policy decisions during the last Labour Government. These include: 9/11 and its aftermath, Afghanistan, Iraq, the Iran nuclear negotiations and Middle East policy. Drawing conclusions from his period in office Mr Straw will offer insights into international relations from a policy maker's point of view and discuss how these lessons can inform our approach to foreign policy in general and to some of the emerging issues in current global affairs in particular. In this regard the talk will touch on the coming transition in Afghanistan, the Arab Spring, Iran, Islamic extremism in Africa and the changes taking place in Europe.
