When Archbishop Desmond Tutu was appointed chairman of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), he adopted the principles of “Ubuntu”, a South African philosophy meaning "humanity towards others", and a “belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity". By adopting some of Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s doctrines and teachings of Ubuntu and forgiveness, we may get closer to learning how to avoid, resolve and at least how to manage the hatred that drives and motivates so many conflicts.

Speakers include: 

  • Michael Palin, 
  • Andrew Mitchell QC,
  • Shaun Bailey, 2020 London Mayoral candidate,
  • Dr Ahmad Al Dubayan,
  • Nomatemba Tambo, High Commissioner to the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland
  • Dr Victor Olisa QPM, retired senior Metropolitan Police officer.

This collaboration between Regent’s and the Tutu Foundation UK has been highly effective in promoting the legacy of Archbishop Desmond Tutu and we explore our current theme through panel discussions featuring high-profile speakers from business, broadcasting and politics.

    Tea and coffee breaks and a finger buffet lunch are included for all participants.
