What are the prospects of ending the war in Syria? Six years on, the terrible conflict appears to show little sign of abating. The complex geopolitics of the conflict, from the spectre of ISIS to the crucial role of Russia, require, Michael Williams argues, a constellation of international actors to be at the negotiating table along with the bitter enemies on the ground in Syria.

As the tide of migrants seeking refuge in Europe illustrate it is not a matter from which states in neighbouring regions are removed. What, then, should be the way forward?

Lord Williams of Baglan, an acclaimed analyst and hugely experienced diplomat who has worked in postings across the world, especially in the Middle East and Asia, will explore these global issues in his first talk.

Lord Williams was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of the University in recognition of his contribution to diplomacy and human rights across the world.
