This lecture is the first of what we hope to be an engaging Medical Lecture Series, for which there will be one lecture per year. This will be a high profile event, and will mark the close of the 2013/14 HCRI events programme.
The event will include a panel of key speakers to engage in a debate on humanitarian issues from different medical perspectives, and will be followed by the opportunity to continue the discussions and network at our drinks reception.
5:30-8pm, 2 April 2014
Final details including speakers and registration details will be released in the coming weeks.
The workshop includes a talk by Douglas Fry, and an afternoon's debate about implications for Peacebuilding. The topic of Douglas’ talk is as follows:.

The existence of peace systems demonstrates that it is possible to create social systems free of war.
