Islamic State and Terror: War Without End?

When: Tuesday, 01 August 2017 - Tuesday, 01 August 2017
Where: Parktown Management Campus
Donald Gordon Auditorium, Wits Business School
Start time:18:00

The Wits Business School will host a public lecture by Lord Peter Hain.

The Islamic State (IS) or ‘Daesh’ is the best resourced, most lethal terrorist force in history with a medieval ideology and a capacity to incite attacks worldwide, from Europe and the US to Nigeria and the Philippines. But is current policy in Washington, London, Brussels or Moscow able to defeat it? Is the conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran, between Sunni and Shia also at fault?

Wits Business School will host a public lecture in which Visiting Adjunct Professor, Peter Hain, the Right Honourable Lord Hain of Neath, will explore issues surrounding the highly complex IS phenomenon, including the capacity for, and implications of, military retaliation.
