Kai Eide, former Norwegian politician and diplomat, was invited to give the 2018 Nelson Mandela Humanitarian Pillar Lecture at UWC RCN on Wednesday 6th June. He chose the title of ‘The Changing Balance of Power and other Challenges to our Order’ and gave a stimulating and thought-provoking presentation to an auditorium of students, staff and trainees from Framtidsfylket. He finished with encouragement to defenders of globalism to participate in ongoing debate and to take up the challenge against tribalism in its different forms.

Mr Eide took the opportunity to attend first years classes in Global Politics and Philosophy – and this afternoon attended the formal opening of the Baking House.

We look forward to welcoming him back to RCN in the future.
