Other Activities


In addition to the support the IAS provides for its main sponsored projects and activities each year, the IAS also supports or endorses a series of parallel inter- and intra-disciplinary activities on behalf of Durham departments, the University and external bodies, including public lectures and debates, international conferences, strategic policy briefings, master classes, and prestige publications.


Events such as the IAS's annual London debate, which is the highlight of the Institutes's annual calendar, allows the IAS to showcase its exciting research areas and collaboration each year. The event has also become a major alumni reunion event for Durham, and draws large audiences.

Many of these annual event are now filmed. You can watch previous debates and other events such as the King Hussein lectures by selecting the links below. Additional filmed events can be found here.
