These are photos of the seminar in SIS, JNU (21 January 2010). Prof. Paul Rogers (of the Oxford Research Group) spoke on ‘Global Security and the War on Terror.’ Prof. Rajeev Bhargava, Prof. A. M. Chenoy (chairperson of the centre) were some other dignitaries at the said seminar. He himself suggested that anyone interested in drinking deep can download the full PDF of the paper ‘Global Security and the War on Terror.’ Click here to download the said paper which is available under a Creative Commons- Non Commercial-No Derivative licence.

His talk (including the question-answer session) lasted for about 1.5 hours and was attended by a packed house in the School Of International Studies (see photos below). The audience liked every bit of his talk which was full of anecdotes (from his Uganda field studies to the inputs from his sons working as lecturer and advisor) and interesting insights (at one point of time he flashed his BlackBerry phone to illustrate how much energy it uses compared to the first voyage to the moon). One of his assertions was that the period from 1945 to 2045 is of enormous importance for humanity. He also insisted on the climate change aspect among other things. He said he may not live until 2045 (he will be 100+ years if that happens which is reasonably unlikely) unlike us.

Please download and read his paper. He also addressed a gathering in the India International Centre later in the evening. The photos below are not of a very good quality as I am only an amateur photographer (and deliberately did not move much to shoot nice images fearing annoying others).
