The Philip Rueff Memorial Lecture Series was established to honour and remember Philip Rueff, who chaired Oasis of Peace UK from June 2007 to September 2009, and also served as Chairman of the Lawyers’ Group.
Every year the Lawyers’ Group seeks out an excellent, thought-provoking speaker to deliver a lecture that will inspire debate and dialogue, and has been honoured to host an impressive array of guests.
Save the Date
This year's AGM will take place on July 12th.
Further details coming soon!
We are pleased to announce that our guest speaker for the 8th Philip Rueff Memorial Lecture will be Sir Lawrence Freedman. Sir Lawrence Freedman is the Emeritus Professor of War Studies at King’s College, London. He was a member of the Chilcot Enquiry committee, and has written extensively on nuclear strategy and the cold war, as well as commentating regularly on contemporary security issues. His latest book, The Future of War: A History, has received rave reviews in The Times and The Guardian.
“Once upon a time the distinction between war and peace was clear-cut,” writes Sir Lawrence in Foreign Policy, “it has been a long time since we enjoyed such clarity.” As the distinction between war and peace has become increasingly blurred in contemporary conflicts, much scholarly and journalistic attention has been on the definition of modern warfare. “What is long overdue,” poses Sir Lawrence, “is reflection on the challenge posed to our definition of peace.”
What would such a new definition of peace look like, and what would it mean for the future, not only for Israel-Palestine (with which our charity is concerned) but for the world?
