17 Apr Divided – Why We’re Living In an Age of Walls
Saturday 9th June: 15.00
Informed by 30 years of commenting on world affairs, Tim Marshall’s illuminating explanations of global politics made Prisoners of Geography an international bestseller.
In Divided he brings that wealth of experience and insight to explain what has divided us, past and present.
Thousands of miles of fences and barriers have been erected since the turn of the century, redefining our political landscape. In Europe the divisions of the past decade threaten not only European unity, but in some countries liberal democracy itself. In China, the Party’s need to contain the divisions wrought by capitalism will define the nation’s future. In the USA the rationale for the Mexican border wall taps into the fear that the USA will no longer be a white majority country.
To try and explain all of this Tim will be in conversation with Oxford Professor of Politics and International Relations Karma Nabulsi.
