Terry Waite examines the nature of Peace and Reconciliation in our world today and talks of his personal experiences. The talk will be followed by a short question and answer session.

Terry is a British humanitarian and author. The son of a village policeman in Styal, Cheshire, Terry was born in 1939 and educated at Stockton Heath County Secondary school where he became head boy. In the early 1980s, whilst part of the staff of the Archbishop of Canterbury, he successfully negotiated the release of several hostages from Iran and this event brought him to public attention. In 1983 he negotiated with Colonel Ghadafi for the release of British hostages held in Libya and again was successful. In January 1987 while negotiating for the release of Western hostages in Lebanon he himself was taken captive and remained in captivity for 1,763 days, the first four years of which were spent in total solitary confinement.
