Lord Rees of Ludlow is President of the Royal Society, Master of Trinity College, Astronomer Royal, and a member of the British Pugwash Group Executive Committee.

He will speak about Joseph Rotblat and the other pioneers of the Pugwash movement to study the intersection between science and world affairs. He will also discuss the continued relevance and importance of their example in the 21st century, when science offers immense opportunities but raises new threats and ethical dilemmas.
