Dr Niall Holohan retired recently after forty years of service in the Dept of Foreign Affairs.

He has specialised in Middle Eastern issues having served as Chargé d'Affaires in Iran during the Khomeini era, as the Irish Government's representative to the Palestinian Authority during the second intifada, and finally as Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (as well as Iraq, Yemen, Oman and Bahrain) from 2009 to 2014.

He will discuss the unstable situation in the region where several ongoing conflicts present a serious threat to international peace and security. His particular focus will be on the rise of Islamic fundamentalism and how European countries can respond positively to the new social-political environment created by the Arab Spring and terrorist groups such as al-Queda.
