One for the diary -- distinguished diplomat and academic Sir Ivor Roberts will be sharing his thought on the development of modern diplomacy in Sydney in mid-January.

Sir Roberts will be be discussing the key text 'Satow's Diplomatic Practice', which was first published 90 years ago, and after several revisions, is still the leading text covering the history and practice of diplomacy and international law since the end of the Cold War.

The newly revised text also examines new forms of diplomacy, including the importance of NGO's and the increasing use of secret envoys and commercial security firms.

Sir Roberts' diplomatic service has seen him work in the British High Commission, The British Embassy, and he also has considerable experience in international diplomacy gained during a stint as the UK's Ambassador to Yugoslavia during a tumultuous time in the Balkans in the mid 1990s, and as Ambassador to Ireland and Italy in subsequent years.

The lecture, scheduled for January 14, is free, though registration is required, and will be held at the Sydney Law School at Sydney University. For more information, visit http://www.usyd.edu.au/news/law/457.html?eventid=4953

Time: 5.15pm Registration, 6.00 - 7.00pm Lecture

Location: Sydney Law School, New Law School Building, Eastern Avenue, University of Sydney

Cost: FREE but registration is essential
