What Next? Surviving the Twenty-first Century

LSE IDEAS public lecture

Chris Patten tackles the big questions about our global condition and our collective future with a verve and authority no other current commentator can match.

Lord Patten, Chancellor of Oxford and Newcastle universities, was until recently European Commissioner for External Relations. A former MP, he is best known for being the last Governor of Hong Kong and, at one time, Chairman of the Conservative Party. His previous publications include East and West (1998) and Not Quite the Diplomat (2005). His most recent book is What Next? Surviving the Twenty-first Century (Allen Lane, October 2008).
