Forums

Public, Staff, Students, Alumni, Academics

Speaker: Sir Tom Phillips KCMG (former British Ambassador), Frank Ledwidge (barrister and former military officer), James Rodgers (broadcast journalist and lecturer)

Series: Olive Tree Middle East Forum

To discuss their insights we bring together a former ambassador, a soldier and a TV journalist, all with considerable experience on the front-line in their respective professions, in the Middle East and beyond.

On The Panel:

Sir Tom Phillips KCMG
was British Ambassador to Saudi Arabia (2010-12) and to Israel (2006-2010). Prior to that he was the FCO Director responsible for Afghanistan and South Asia, and he headed the FCO's Eastern Adriatic Department during the Kosovo crisis.

Frank Ledwidge
is a barrister and former military officer who served in the Balkans, Iraq and Afghanistan. His book Losing Small Wars, provides a trenchant critique of Britain's most recent military engagements in the Middle East.

James Rodgers
is the author of Reporting Conflict and the forthcoming No Road Home: fighting for Land and Faith in Gaza. Both books reflect on his experiences as a BBC correspondent covering the Middle East, before he moved to academia as a Lecturer in Journalism, now at City University London.
