This stimulating lecture will cover a broad range of topics relevant to the contemporary human condition, ranging from questions of resources and risk, through to war and water – pivotal issues in the ultimate challenge to re-establish global political and economic stability.

A must not only for all those interested in the development of the contemporary world but in particular for leaders, researchers and scholars concerned with issues of peace, faith, economics, international relations and the human development in middle east – a region that in many ways is at the epicentre of global issues.

HRH Prince El Hassan bin Talal of Jordan is an eminent thinker and world politician whose lecture will address some of mankind’s most significant questions which go to the heart of ‘being human’ in turbulent times.

Prince Hassan is renowned for innovative thinking on issues of global peace and a new global settlement which can be applied to address the issues of the world’s developing countries and indeed all of those who are excluded from mainstream life.
