BISA Conference 2022: Inaugural War Studies Keynote

Thursday 16 June 2022, 18:30 - 19:30 (BST)
Newcastle Civic Centre, Barras Bridge

We are delighted to welcome Professor Sir Lawrence Freedman to give a talk on the Falklands war at the 2022 BISA annual conference.

The lecture will argue the importance of looking at the interaction of operational and political considerations when considering the role of command in war. It will examine two episodes in the war - the sinking of the Belghrano and the battle for Goose Green.

Lawrence Freedman is Emeritus Professor of War Studies at King’s College London. He was Official Historian of the Falklands Campaign as well as a member of the Official Inquiry into the Iraq war. Among his recent books are Strategy: A History (2013), and the Future of War: A History (2017). Command: The Politics of Military Operations from Korea to Afghanistan will be published in September.

This event is free and open to the public. All are welcome.

About BISA 2022 Conference

The British International Studies Association (BISA) conference is renowned for being inclusive, diverse and friendly. We bring together a worldwide community of specialists to discuss, promote and develop international studies.

In 2022 we’re asking: Is the world able to cooperate effectively to address to global challenges? With global attention turned towards the pandemic, what major shifts in global politics are taking place out of sight? Does the digitisation of international politics create new forms of hybrid activism and change, or augment existing divides and inequalities? And how do we access international politics?
