An opportunity to hear from the UK’s former senior UN official.

His role to save lives and protect the most vulnerable included working with politicians and international leaders around the world. In conversation with writer and campaigner Melissa Benn, expect a timely look at the unspoken rules of war that are currently impacting Ukraine as well as recommendations on how the world could improve its response to the mounting tragedies which surround us.
