Europe After Brexit: A one-day conference examining the future stability of the European Union

When: 10.30am-4.45pm Friday 29 March 2019
Where: SG1/SG2 of the Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, Cambridge

The European Union is facing the most serious crisis in its history and could be on a pathway to disintegration. The question of whether the EU can survive depends on its ability to withstand three decisive challenges – the widespread loss of faith in the Liberal orthodoxies on which the EU was built; the shifting geopolitical environment, in particular the apparent withdrawal of American sponsorship for European integration and attempts by Russia to undermine the EU’s internal unity; and the inevitability of another economic recession, which has the potential to overwhelm the Eurozone. All this has implications for the UK, which will remain umbilically bound to the European continent, as it always has been. To this end, the University of Cambridge’s Forum on Geopolitics will organise a one-day conference that assesses the future of the EU on the day the UK leaves the union and asks whether the apparently deepening crisis in Europe poses an unforeseen challenge to the UK’s security, prosperity and political system after its exit from the EU.

The Hijaz: The First Islamic State

When: 25 February, 5.30pm-7.00pm
Where: Bateman Auditorium, Caius College 
Register for tickets here

As part of its Engelsberg Programme on Applied History, and together with the Cambridge Middle East and North Africa Forum, the Forum on Geopolitics is pleased to present this launch of Professor Malik Dahlan’s latest book, The Hijaz: The First Islamic State. Dahlan offers an alternative vision of Islamic governance through the history and promise of the Hijaz, the first state of Islam. The Hijaz, in the west of present-day Saudi Arabia, was the first Islamic state in Mecca and Medina. This new interpretative history offers a fresh vision of Islamic governance and law as a positive force for political reform in the Middle East and beyond.
