Iain has faced many testing decisions in his career, acting as an advisor to Paddy Ashdown on the Northern Ireland Peace Process, consultant to Kofi Annan's Africa Progress Panel, a peacekeeping administrator in Kosovo and, most recently, a consultant to British troops working with local communities in Afghanistan. He is also a former fellow of the University of Cambridge and in his fascinating book offers a compelling and jargon-free guide to ethical thinking for everyday life. He interrogates traditional tenets of morality and constructs a new, comprehensive system of ethics, identifying the DNA of right and wrong and offering clear and practical advice on how to be good in today's complicated and challenging world.
This is sure to be an exciting and thought-provoking event, so book your tickets now!
