University of Bradford pre-election lecture series begins with Middle East
The first of the University of Bradford's public lecture series in the lead up to the general election takes place on Wednesday 18th March.
The lecture, Middle East, conflict and security: foreign policy challenges of the next government, will examine the impact of foreign policy of the past two governments and assess the challenges that the next government will face.
The lecture will be delivered by Dr Afshin Shahi from the University’s peace studies division, an expert in Middle East politics, political Islam and religious sectarianism. It will take place in the Norcroft Centre on the city campus at 6pm.
The University will be hosting one of the polling stations for Bradford West in the 2015 General Elections and in the lead up to the elections will be holding various public events, including six public lectures by academics from the University. These public lectures consider some of the key election issues for the people of Bradford, the UK and the wider world, with analyses of social policy, economics, foreign policy, austerity and poverty.
