    A Distinguished Lecture delivered by Akbar Khan, Secretary General, Commonwealth Parliamentary Association.

    This event will be hosted by our Vice-Chancellor, Professor Tim Blackman..

    The Commonwealth is the world’s oldest political association. It has been described in some quarters as an irrelevant historical anachronism in the 21st century and by others as the perfect network or platform to address the global challenges of today, especially post-Brexit.

    How accurate are these assertions?

    In this lecture, Akbar Khan, Secretary General, Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, will speak on the enduring nature of the Commonwealth which comprises a unique network of peoples, civil society and governments. He will explore how these networks mark the Commonwealth out as unusually constituted global player, unlike any other international organisation, enabling it to justifiably claim to be a People’s Commonwealth which is democratic and diverse in nature.
