Past Program


The Rt Hon the Baroness Usha Prashar delivered the 2018 Palliser Lecture on "Democracy and Civil Society - A Shrinking Space?" on March 16, 2018 in London, UK.

This was the fourth lecture in memory of the Rt Hon Sir Michael Palliser GCMG, who died in 2012. He served as Vice-Chair of Salzburg Global Seminar and was a founding trustee of the London-based 21st Century Trust, which now works exclusively with Salzburg Global Seminar. His counsel and support were a huge boon to our work over many years. Sir Michael enjoyed a long career in the British Diplomatic Service, culminating as Permanent Under Secretary of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Head of the Diplomatic Service.
