PLC Sydney 360
The PLC Sydney 360 is a new initiative in 2017. This year we are taking the topic of the Middle East and seeking to make it easier to understand. It's an opportunity to consider how a region of the world has become a trouble spot and what might be done to address the issue.
We have some wonderful speakers from a variety of backgrounds and vocations, who will present different aspects of the Middle East debate, that will open our minds and challenge the way we think:
- Dr Norman Ricklefs – Consultant, former advisor to Iraqi Minister of Interior and Libyan Prime Minister
- Ms Therese Tayah – Consultant, former advisor to US Department of State and Department of Justice
- Ms Suzy David – Senior Advisor to the Assyrian National Alliance
- Mrs Lynda Ben-Menashe – Community Relations Manager at NSW Jewish Board of Deputies
- Mr Keysar Trad – President of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils
