“One set of posters that went up well before the conference showed world leaders in 2020 apologizing for having failed in Copenhagen in 2009: ageing Obamas, Merkels, Browns et al look down and acknowledge their fault. But there have been no apologies. Instead they have passed the blame. Let’s try something different. Instead of blame and apology let’s take some time to discuss results, reasons and response. It’s a lengthy discussion that must start now because it’s already time to shake off that hangover.”
Michael Innes was so disappointed not to be able to make it to Leeds on Monday he has kindly offered to run a special session of Monday Dec 7th at 12-1 in room 11.14.
He will be offering a personal reflection on working for NATO in Afghanistan plus giving some advice about how to get jobs in organisations like NATO.
If you are interested in reading his thoughts prior to the session, please have a look at The Safe Haven Myth
