Young people in the UK today who are attracted to extremism are typically well educated. Given the weaknesses of this ideology in terms of its use of history, internal coherence of arguments and moral standards, its success with many educated young people requires explanation. The explanation, according to Dr. Farid, is multifaceted but education has a big role to play in curbing the trend.

If the British general election was a shock to many in the UK, then it was equally so for the chancelleries across the European Union. As much as they had started to think about a British renegotiation and referendum, there has been a very strong sense that the election result would throw that out of the window. Any such thoughts are now firmly gone. This commentary explores the outcome of the British General Election and the implications for a British in-out EU referendum.

The majority of lectures and conferences marking the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War will be examining why the conflict occurred, concentrating on particular sets of events leading to war or on different aspects of the war’s course, character and consequences. By contrast, the emphasis of this roundtable discussion – and claim to originality – will be on continuing areas of uncertainty in the historical account of the outbreak of war: it will show how key decisions are still ‘unexplained’, allowing a variety of interpretations. This roundtable of internationally-renowned scholars will ask what we still do not know about the causes of the First World War.
