Shirley Williams, "What has our nation learnt from war?"

Shirley Williams asks what we've learnt from war, as part of 'Living Without Enemies', the St Martin-in-the-Fields autumn lecture series 2014


"Living Without Enemies: Christian Responses to War and Violence" is this year's St Martin-in-the-Fields autumn lecture series. In the year that much of the world remembers the descent of Europe into the chaos of the First World War, we reflect on what we have learnt from war and how those who believe in a God of Justice and Love can respond.

Shirley Williams, journalist, broadcaster, and former Cabinet minister, is a co-founder of both the Social Democrats and the Liberal Democrats. Testament of Youth (1933) by her mother Vera Brittain remains one of the most powerful reflections on the effects of World War I. Baroness Williams, an active Life Peer, has worked on school reform, nuclear non-proliferation, and EU social policy, and helped draft the constitution of South Africa. She taught public policy at Harvard University and was director of Project Liberty, fostering democracy in post-Communist Europe.
