Britain and the Occupations of Iraq
Wednesday, 11 September 2013
6.30pm to 7.45pm, followed by a reception
Venue: The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AG
Chaired by Professor Sir Adam Roberts KCMG, FBA with panellists:
Dr Ali A. Allawi, Professor Nadje Al Ali, Professor Rosemary Hollis and Professor Charles Tripp FBA.
This panel will provide the opportunity for a public debate about British-Iraqi relations in the 10th anniversary year of British participation in the invasion and occupation of Iraq. The focus of the panel will be contemporary, but will allow for reflection on the ways in which the histories of Iraq and Great Britain have been intertwined. It will be a chance to discuss the kinds of politics from which British occupation(s) of Iraq emerged and the political order that they have helped to bring into being. The interests, the prejudices and the passions on both sides have set in motion forces that have shaped the histories of both countries and the four panellists will introduce a number of themes that will help us to reflect on the still unfolding consequences.
It is organised by the British Institute for the Study of Iraq (Gertrude Bell Memorial) with the British Academy and in association with the Gertrude Bell Archive at Newcastle University.
