Chatham House, London


Sir Jeremy Greenstock, Former British Ambassador to the United Nations (1998-2003)

Chatham House will host a special recording of BBC Radio 4's The World Tonight with Robin Lustig. A group of leading experts on the Arab world will discuss whether the toppling of leaders in several countries across the region by popular protests will lead to real democratic change or whether vested interests will reassert themselves in new guises.

Recording will start promptly at 13.30. We ask that delegates be seated in the auditorium by 13.25.

The programme will air on BBC Radio 4 at 22:00 on Monday 14 March.

Registration for this event has now closed.
