London event Nov 24: Narrative and Conflict

Scroll down to content
From Russia’s war in Ukraine to the fight against Islamic State, talk of “shaping the narrative” has become ever more central to discussion of conflict. But what does that really mean? PS21 calls together a uniquely qualified panel to discuss this. Is it something separate to direct military action or something that happens alongside? How does the Internet and social media change how it works? Western states ever truly affect the popular narrative in regions such as the Middle East? And what historical lessons can we learn from recent and not so recent conflicts?
Peter Apps: global defence correspondent, Reuters. Executive director, PS21 ( moderator)
Lieutenant-General Sir Graeme Lamb retired: former UK Director Special Forces and advisor to US commanders in Iraq and Afghanistan. Member of the PS21 International  Advisory Group
John Bassett: former head of GCHQ London and Washington stations. Member of the PS21 International  Advisory Group.
Alia Brahimi: visiting fellow, Oxford University. PS21 global fellow
