Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been cancelled. Apologies for any inconvenience caused


Mikheil Saakashvili, Ukrainian and former Georgian politician, will deliver a lecture entitled "National interests in the post-Truth world". Mikheil Saakashvili was President of Georgia for two consecutive terms between 2004 and 2013. As a result of Saakashvili’s reforms in Georgia, the rate of corruption in the country was drastically reduced and the business environment was improved significantly. In 2015, Mr Saakahsvili became the governor of Ukraine's Odessa region, a post he held until November 2016.


The lecture will be introduced by Professor Ngaire Woods, Dean of the Blavatnik School of Government, and moderated by Yelyzaveta Yasko, current MPP student at the School and President of Oxford University Ukrainian Society.


The event is organised by the Blavatnik School of Government and the Oxford University Ukrainian Society (OUUS).
