Conference: The Kurds in a Changing Middle East

21 02 2015
Cambridge-LogoPembroke Politics, in collaboration with the Cambridge University Kurdish Society, warmly invite you to our very exciting panel on ‘The Kurds in a Changing Middle East’ on Wednesday 25th February, 5 pm.

The issues surrounding Kurdistan and Kurdish Unity have shot to prominence in recent years in light of the Arab Spring, the Syrian Civil War, and the rise of ISIS. Even more recently the battle for Kobani, and its eventual liberation by Kurdish forces, have dominated Western headlines. To discuss the future for Kurds in the Middle East we have panel made up of the following:

Falah Mustafa, Head of the Department of Foreign Relations, Kurdistan Regional Government, Iraq

Sir Richard Dearlove, Master of Pembroke College (Chair)

Alan Semo, PYD Syrian Kurdistan Foreign Relations Head

Nadhim Zahawi MP, the only British-Kurdish MP, and a member of the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee

Renad Mansour, Department of Politics and International Studies, Cambridge
