These fifty failed states pose the central challenge of the developing world in the twenty-first century. The Lecture was Chaired by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford

Stiglitz on Credit Crunch - Global Financial Debacle: Meeting the Challenges of Global Governance in
The global financial crisis reflects a failure of global economic governance. The failure of America's regulatory system has not only ramifications for the American economy, but for the global economy. It is clear that the banks' risk management systems could not even protect their own shareholders, let alone the well-being of the global economy. What went wrong? Where did the global financial regulators fail? What can we do to minimize the downturn? And what, if anything, can we do to prevent a

A New Approach to Nuclear Disarmament: Learning from International Humanitarian Law Success
Achieving an end-state of "zero" has emerged as an important policy goal for a number of 21st Century challenges. The most prominent example is the "Global Zero" campaign to eliminate nuclear weapons. Few issues are more appropriate subjects of humanitarian concern and international humanitarian law than the choice, possession, use and misuse of weapons.

Global Eradication of Infectious Diseases: Can 'Not Very Much' undermine the goal of 'None at All'?
Despite the well-publicised success of global smallpox eradication, 'zero' remains an elusive goal for the majority of vaccine-preventable diseases, making reduced pathogen circulation, or direct protection of the vulnerable more achievable strategies. We will consider potential deleterious consequences of reduced infection transmission, in the context of diseases such as influenza and pertussis, where immunity following natural exposure may be superior to that following immunisation.
