Speaker: HRH Prince El Hassan bin Talal
We are honoured to be welcoming His Royal Highness Prince El Hassan bin Talal to talk on how the West can facilitate peace in the Middle East. A highly intricate subject, conflict in the region has been rife for centuries. The UK, in particular, can use its soft powers to help broker deals that can hopefully lead to peace, stability and prosperity for all.
His Royal Highness has initiated, founded and is actively involved in a number of Jordanian and international institutes and committees. In Jordan, HRH established the Royal Scientific Society in 1970, the Arab Thought Forum (in 1981), the Higher Council for Science and Technology in 1987 and the Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies in 1994.
On the international stage, many of HRH’s ideas and initiatives have been catalytic to international decisions and resolutions. Addressing the 36th Session of the United Nations in 1981, he proposed the establishment of the New International Humanitarian Order, which led to a request by the Secretary General to found and co-chair the Independent Commission on International Humanitarian Issues (ICIHI). The final report of the Commission was adopted as a resolution at the 42nd General Assembly of the United Nations
