Paul Mason, economics editor of the BBC's flagship program Newsnight and author of Why It's Kicking Off Everywhere, will give a lecture on the recent unprecedented wave of protests and revolts across the world. In 2011 we have seen unrest in many different parts of the world, from the Arab Spring in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya, to the indignados in Spain, the urban protests in Israel and the youth riots in Britain. 2012 has already started with the ongoing breakdown of Greek society. In his new book Why It's Kicking Off Everywhere, Paul Mason analyses the reasons behind the current wave of struggles.
Paul Mason is also one of the most influential journalists on twitter. He first reported live for the BBC on 9-11, and covered the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008 from outside its New York HQ.
