|3rd Mar 2008||18:15||Academic||JOHN PEET: Europe and the Nation State||At the start of 2008, Kosovo is set to become the latest addition to the crop of new European states. Last year, with differences between Flemish and Walloon politicians impeding the formation of a coalition, Belgium suffered a political paralysis for 6 months. In May, the Scottish Nationalists became Scotland's largest party. Paradoxically, as European integration became ever-wider and deeper, we have witnessed the proliferation of sub-nationalist movements, breakaway republics and "identity politics". John Peet, Europe Editor and former Brussels Correspondent at The Economist, will help us to make sense of these developments and their implications. (Junior Parlour).|

Her husband Nestor Kirchner presided over recovery from deep economic crisis, which left 54% of the population below the poverty line and GDP 25% lower. At the beginning of 2002 the country had announced the largest sovereign debt default in history, turned over five Presidents in a fortnight, and suffered massive street protests and currency devaluation. Dr Szusterman will examine the rise and achievements of the Kirchners in historical context and consider where they leave Argentina. Celia Szusterman is Principal Lecturer in Spanish and Latin American studies at the University of Westminster and an Associate Fellow at Chatham House and the Institute for the Study of the Americas, University of London. She has published work on Argentine democracy and commented on the 2007 election for the Financial Times, openDemocracy.net, and the BBC.

|28th Feb 2008||19:30||Societies||Biofuelling the Future||Biofuels present an attractive way to cut carbon emissions and move to more
sustainable fuels, by blending crops such as sugar and corn with petrol. Gordon Brown has pledged that 5% of fuel in the UK be sourced from biofuels by 2010; but with EU ministers poised to slash targets in the face of mounting environmental concerns, are biofuels really the way forwards? Or could the hidden costs actually accelerate climate change? Cambridge University Chemical Society presents a panel debate on the role of biofuels in a post-oil world.
Mike Lawton, Founder and CEO of Regenatec Ultra Low Carbon Vehicles
Dr. Andrew Boswell, BioFuelWatch, and Green Party councillor for Norwich
Darran Messem, Vice President of Fuel Development at Shell Prof. David MacKay, Professor of Natural Philosophy, University of Cambridge.

|20th Feb 2008||18:15||Academic||DR DIEGO MURO: ETA and Basque Nationalism ||2007 saw dramatic developments in the struggle against radical Basque nationalism. The terrorist group ETA abandoned its ceasefire on December 30th 2006 in an attack on Barajas Airport with 200kg of explosives that left two people dead. The opposition Popular Party organised massive rallies condemning the ruling Socialists' previous policy of dialogue. After a year of foiled plots, the following December has brought two assassinations and a further two bombings. In the meantime, the Basque Nationalist Party's first minister of the Basque Country, Juan José Ibarretxe, has been arraigned before the Supreme Court after meeting with members of ETA's banned political wing Batasuna. Dr Muro will profile the phenomenon of Basque nationalism, analysing the level of support for armed movements and discussing the implications for Spanish politics in the run-up to the Spanish general election this March. Dr Muro is Lecturer in Spanish Politics at King's College London. An authority on Basque nationalism, he recently completed Ethnicity and Violence: the case of radical Basque nationalism.
