Sat Jul 10thSaturday TalksPeter Jarman: Steps towards a more peaceful world Begins at 10.30am.

Peter Jarman, formerly Europe Secretary of Quaker Peace and Service, an accredited journalist based in Moscow and an Associate of the Swedish Trans-National Foundation for Peace Research. He graduated in pure and applied nuclear physics, and was on the first Aldermaston March of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.

He will give some anecdotal reflections with illustrations based on his many visits to the former Soviet Union and other Communist States including China. They included meetings both with members of the ruling Communist parties and with persons and groups oppressed by them.

We were fortunate to have survived the nuclear confrontation of the Cold War years: was the conflict poorly managed?

What are the prospects of more peaceful relations with Russia and China today?
