Title of Talk: ‘The Commonwealth: Reform, Resuscitate or Lay to Rest?’

Speaker Bio:

Professor Murphy is currently Professor of British and Commonwealth History at the University of Reading, seconded as Director of the Institute of Commonwealth Studies. At Reading he was responsible for establishing one of the UK’s first courses on the intelligence community and British politics.

His major research interest in Intelligence and 20th-century British and Commonwealth history has made Professor Murphy a sought-after expert by the international media. He is regularly consulted as an academic expert and has written extensively on decolonisation and the development of the modern Commonwealth. In a recent Telegraph article, his latest book, Monarchy and the End of the Empire, was described as ‘superbly researched’ and ‘by a country mile the most important and well-informed to have been written about the contemporary British monarchy’.
