- UCL-Institute of the Americas, Seminar Room 105, 51 Gordon Square, WC1H 0PN London
UCL - Institute of the Americas (UCL-IA) cordially invites you to this seminar, delivered by Sir Nicholas Bayne KCMG, former British High Commissioner to Canada.
In the 1990s, Canada became very concerned at the shrinking fish stocks on the Grand Banks. In March 1995, when Spanish fishermen would not observe conservation measures, Canada arrested a trawler in international waters. Spain reacted angrily and further conflict threatened.But shifts within the Canadian government and the European Union allowed diplomacy to prevail. A peaceful solution was agreed in the nick of time and the Turbot War did not take place. Nicholas Bayne’s was British High Commissioner to Canada during this period and his talk gives the inside story of what happened.
Reception will start at 17:30 and the presentation at 18:00. Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required.
