Veteran journalists Robert Fisk and Conor O’Clery will discuss global events in this special forum drawing from their many years of experience reporting from around the world.
Robert Fisk is The Independent’s multi-award-winning Middle East correspondent, based in Beirut. He has lived in the Arab world for more than 40 years, covering the war in Syria and Lebanon, five Israeli invasions, the Iran-Iraq war, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the Algerian civil war, Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait, the Bosnian and Kosovo wars, the American invasion and occupation of Iraq and the 2011 Arab revolutions. His latest book is ‘The Great War For Civilisation’.
Conor O'Clery has retired as the Senior Irish Times Foreign Correspondent and has twice been awarded Journalist of the Year for his dispatches from Moscow and for his reporting on the 9/11 attacks on New York. He is the author of several books, his latest being ‘The Shoemaker and his Daughter’.
These veteran journalists will discuss current political scenarios based on their many years of experience and insights into world politics. This is an interactive session and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
