Durham University Global Lecture Series 2020

Unprecedented is a word that has been used repeatedly over the course of 2020 as we grapple with the sheer scale of events that have played out over the past twelve months. In a year that we have been hit by a global health pandemic; where political tensions have raised questions about democracy, freedoms and human rights; where extreme weather and natural disasters have brought an urgency to the issue of climate change; and where countries across the globe struggle with the social, political and economic fall-out, we will consider what that means now, and what it could mean for our future.

In a series of ‘in conversation’ webinars, we will look at some of the big issues that fall out from these events: inequalities, the role of the media and the 24 hours news agenda, today’s political environment, global warming, international security, and what the impact is on our society more broadly.
