London Event 31 March: Managing Strategic Shocks


This year marks the 15th anniversary off 9/11 and the 75th of Pearl Harbor. PS21 examines how major shocks such as these — also including natural disasters such as Fukushima — can be managed by both government and others. How do they change our actions, how do they shift public opinion? PS21 will host another world class panel, while introducing two new Global Fellows.

Tom Bruxner [moderator] – former British Army officer

Group Captain Ian Shields – former RAF officer with experience in Afghanistan, currently teaching at Anglia Ruskin University

Frederic Ischebeck-Baum – former UNODC Counter-Piracy Advisor, fellow of the Cambridge Security Initiative

John Bassett– former GCHQ official and head of London and Washington stations

This is a joint event between the Sir Michael Howard Centre for the History of War at King’s College London and PS21.

Guests can arrive from 5.30pm and the discussion starts at 6.00pm.
