International Relations: 1

WHEN: 30th March 2016 @ 7pm


In this three-part series, Alexander Knapp will offer an introduction to international relations for the curious and concerned global citizen. The first session will offer a framework upon which the tapestry (or car-crash) of current events might make a bit more sense, followed by a whirlwind tour of who’s who in the ‘international community’, and finally, some of the good news about poverty, progress and global stability that gives us hope that we might get out of ‘Berzerkistan’ alive.

A veteran of 20 years of international development, including eleven United Nations peacekeeping and humanitarian aid missions, he specialises in post-conflict reconstruction, transitional governance and constitutional law, and large-scale logistics in fragile states. A Visiting Lecturer at Regent’s University, he teaches international relations, international law and international business.
