The Fog of Peace- talk chaired by Jon Snow

  • Mar 4, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join London European Club for a talk on War and Peace.

In war there is rarely a single action or answer that will bring peace. As we are seeing with the conflict in Syria, the process of negotiation and resolution is incredibly complex. As the focus swings from intervention to international conferences, how do you begin to forge an agreement?

The authors of The Fog of Peace: The Human Face of Conflict Resolution will be joining us to share their analysis of international diplomacy and the complexities of conflict resolution. They will be exploring the question of intervention and examining the impact of the changing nature of warfare and technology.

Chaired by Channel 4 News presenter, Jon Snow.


Gabrielle Rifkind is the director of the Middle East programme at Oxford Research Group. She is a group analyst and specialist in conflict resolution immersed in the politics of the Middle East. Rifkind combines in-depth political and psychological expertise with many years’ experience in promoting serious analysis and discreet dialogues with groups behind the scenes.

Giandomenico Picco served as under-secretary general of the United Nations and was personal representative of the secretary general for the United Nation year of dialogue amongst civilisations. He led the task force negotiations to end the Iran-Iraq war and the freedom of Western hostages from Lebanon. Over decades he helped securing the freedom of 127 individuals unjustly detained from 4 different countries.

    Very good points raised e.g. how each individual is unique and can form a world of his own. In addition very interesting to observe the impressive public speaking (and listening) abilities of the 3 speakers.

    Two fascinating speakers, passionately chaired by Jon Snow. Pity I missed the socialising at the beginning, though.

    This was one of the better debates at the Frontline Club and usually they are good. Very intelectual and stimulating, very good points about negotiations, narative, identitity, and the impossibility of impartiality.....
