The College is delighted to welcome Ambassador Peter Galbraith (1973, PPE) back this April to give a lecture on the current situation in the Middle East. Drawing on his first-hand expertise of the region he will ask the question: How does it all end? Syria, Iraq and Kurdistan.

Peter was appointed as the first United States Ambassador to Croatia by President Bill Clinton in 1993, where he was actively involved in the peace processes in Croatia and Bosnia. He has a wealth of professional experience in international relations, with particular expertise on Iraq and its Kurdish region. Peter travelled to Iraq during the Kurdish uprising, exposing Saddam Hussein’s atrocities and contributing to the decision to create a safe haven in the north of the country. From 2003 to 2005, he was an advisor to the Kurdish Regional Government in Iraq. He is the author of two books: The End of Iraq: How American Incompetence Created a War without End (2006) and Unintended Consequences: How War in Iraq Strengthened America’s Enemies (2008).

Ambassador Galbraith's lecture is open to all who wish to attend and will take place at 5.30pm on Tuesday, 25 April 2017, in The Bernard Sunley Lecture Theatre at St Catherine’s College.
