Event description

Description

General the Lord Richards was Chief of the Defence Staff from 2010-2013 and a member of Prime Minister David Cameron’s National Security Council as well as the Government’s strategic military commander. He is particularly well known for his creative interpretation of military orders in Sierra Leone in 2000 which ultimately led to the defeat of the rebel Revolutionary United Front and the prevention of much bloodshed and civilian loss of life. Drawing on his experiences, and in conversation with writer Harry Bucknall, General Richards will review the unsettled strategic landscape and present some possible solutions where a shortage of statesmen and statecraft is further complicating an already volatile world stage.

General Richards’ views, ever thought provoking, will lead to an entertaining and lively Q & A
