Time : 6:30pm, Monday 6th July

Location: Canary Wharf (exact location will be given to registered attendees)

From ISIS to Somali pirates, the last decade has seen an unprecedented level of interest in kidnap and ransom. PS21 brings together a uniquely qualified panel to discuss both the trade itself and the growing kidnap and ransom (K&R) industry. From London in particular, an elite group of specialists offer negotiation skills, helping insurers bring people home in one piece. But is that simply perpetuating the problem? And what approach, if any, should governments take when it comes to paying ransoms to kidnappers?

Chair: Peter Apps: Executive Director PS21

Nigel Inkster: former deputy-chief Secret Intelligence Service (MI6)

Brittany Damora: Senior Operations Manager, Kidnap & Ransom, Aegis Response.

Nigel Brennan: Photojournalist and author who was kidnapped in Somalia in 2008 and held hostage for 15 months

Drinks from 6.30pm, discussion from 7pm
