Once again WBS invites you to a free public lecture by renowned British politician, activist and author Peter Hain, the Right Honourable Lord Hain of Neath, as he tackles the following questions:

  • Is Trump part of a wider threatening right wing populism?
  • Has globalisation failed too many people?
  • Are decent, secure working class jobs compatible with free trade?

Brought up in SA, Peter’s parents were jailed then banned and forced into exile in 1966. Peter served in the governments of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown for twelve years. As Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, he negotiated an end to the conflict, and as a staunch anti-apartheid leader, Peter was instrumental in stopping all-white South African sports tours from 1969 onwards. An author of 21 books, Peter is Visiting Adjunct Professor at Wits Business School. Click here for speaker bio
