Travels through Kurdistan [Edinburgh Lecture]

Presented by Sir Terence Clark KBE CMG CVO

Against the background of the long and complicated history of the Kurds, the speaker will describe the different paths the Kurdish communities in Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria have taken towards maintaining their national identity, drawing on first-hand experience of the region over many years. Illustrated.

Sir Terence Clark spent much of his diplomatic career in the Middle East and as Ambassador to Iraq in 1985-89 had many opportunities of travelling through the Kurdish region. He has continued this interest in retirement and has revisited much of the region in the past decade.

The talk will be followed by a drinks reception
