Public Lecture Series - Barnard Castle School 7:00 pm Speaker - Professor George Joffe

I have focused on Mediterranean affairs for many years, alongside my professional interests in the Middle East and North Africa. I currently teach a postgraduate course at the University of Cambridge, as an affiliate lecturer, on the international relations and geopolitics of the Middle East and North Africa which contains a significant component on Mediterranean issues and Euro-Mediterranean policy. I have been engaged in research and teaching on these regions since 1978 and have published widely on them in academic journals and books as well as editing six books on these and similar subjects. I am also the academic director of the Centre for the Study of International Relations in the Middle East and North Africa (CIRMENA) in Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS) at the University of Cambridge.
