The world is changing: from dramatic changes in the distribution of global GDP to the US ‘pivot’ to Asia, from turbulence in the Middle East to disruption in Russia, from a new era of commodity prices to shocks to the financial system, the early 21st century seems unfamiliar, volatile and unpredictable.

As Peter argues in his new book The Silk Roads: A New History of the World, the world’s centre of gravity is shifting – and has been for the last hundred years. In fact, it is returning to where it lay for millennia - in the heart of Asia.

The seminar will take place at Saïd Business School on 9 March 2016. Please arrive at the School from 12:15pm for a prompt 12.30pm start. Lunch will be provided and then the lecture will commence at 1pm.
