The co-leader of the Green Party will discuss war and peace in the modern world at Leeds’ annual peace lecture.

Caroline Lucas MP will deliver the 2016 Olof Palme Memorial Peace Lecture, organised by Leeds Beckett University and the Leeds City Council Peace Links Group.

It takes place at the Civic Hall on October 27.

Ahead of the lecutre Caroline said: “We live in dangerous times and I’ll be making the case for a radical rethink of our defence policy which prioritises the prevention of conflict over armed intervention.

“Central to that must be an understanding of the impact of climate change and environmental degradation on conflicts around the world – and a commitment to tackling the raging inequality which fuels the fire of war.”
