February 2003
No 34

The war clouds gathering over Iraq, recurrent terrorist threats, a crisis over nuclear proliferation in North Korea and violent conflicts in many corners of the world - these and other issues at the centre of public concern will be addressed in a University of Leicester Public Lecture on Tuesday, March 18.

War and Peace in the 21st Century, the Inaugural Lecture to be given by Adrian Hyde-Price, Professor of Political and International Relations, will consider two key questions:

The University of Leicester was founded in 1921 as a living memorial to the dead of the First World War, a fitting background, therefore, to an inaugural lecture looking into questions of war and peace.

The talk, War and Peace in the 21st Century, will be given by Professor Hyde-Price on Tuesday, March 18, 2003 at 5.30pm in Lecture Theatre 1, Ken Edwards Building, University of Leicester main campus. It is open to the public and free.

NOTE TO EDITORS:   A summary of the lecture follows. Further information is available from Professor Adrian Hyde-Price, Professor of Politics and International Relations, University of Leicester Department of Politics, telephone 0116 252 2795, email
