3rd Mar 200818:15AcademicJOHN PEET: Europe and the Nation StateAt 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).

29th Feb 200818:15Guest SpeakerCELIA SZUSTERMAN: Mr & Mrs Kirchner: Political Regression in Argentina? Cristina de Kirchner won a landslide victory in Argentina in October 2007 after 4 years as First Lady and 10 years as a senator. 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,, and the BBC.

28th Feb 200819:30SocietiesBiofuelling the FutureBiofuels 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.
