Topical Tuesdays: 20 Years After 9/11, with Gideon Rachman OP, 1976-80



Zoom Webinar

The Topical Tuesday series sees guest speakers from the St Paul’s Community share their take on the current environment.

How did the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington change the world? Twenty years after the event, Gideon Rachman OP, 1976-80 argues that the events of 9/11 marked the start of a much more troubled era in US history – and the end of the era of the post cold-war optimism.

Gideon Rachman is Chief Foreign Affairs Commentator for the Financial Times. He writes a weekly column for the FT and hosts an international-affairs podcast. His main interests include geopolitics in Asia, US foreign policy and the future of the EU.

Rachman has won the Orwell Prize for journalism (2016) and was also named commentator of the year in the European Press Prize awards in 2016.

He has written two books on international politics – Zero-Sum World (2011) and Easternisation (2016). He is also a regular public speaker, appearing before both academic and business audiences.
