A special seminar sponsored by the British Council’s Delphe-Iraq Programme, organised in
association with Queen Mary’s Centre for Global Security and Development and History Department.
Conflict in Iraq did not start with the 2003 invasion but has, in areas, been endemic since the
founding of the modern state. Using evidence both from Iraq and from comparable cases around
the world from Sri Lanka to Northern Ireland, this seminar explores why such conflicts occur, are
sometimes so sustained, and the applicability of different approaches to peacebuilding both in Iraq
and elsewhere.

The seminar will be chaired by Dr Rick Saull, Director of the Centre for Global Security and
Development and will feature presentations from:

Conflict in Iraq
Dr Toby Dodge (author of Inventing Iraq and Iraq’s Future)
Terrorism: Causes and Consequences
Dr Martyn Frampton (author of Talking to Terrorists: Making Peace in Northern Ireland and the Basque Country)Counter-Insurgency and Intervention
Dr Bryan Mabee (author of The Globalisation of Security)
Complex Power-Sharing
Dr Brendan O’Duffy (author of Self-Determination and Conflict Resolution in Northern Ireland, Sri Lanka and Beyond)
