Conference Registration Open

You can now register for the 'Britain and the Independence of the Bolivarian Republics' conference, to be held at Canning House in London on 5 September 2012: just click here and you will be taken to the Canning House page from where you can register. It is a free event, and open to everyone.

The venue is a particularly appropriate place for our discussions. Canning House is named, of course, after George Canning, the British Foreign Secretary in the 1820s when Britain recognised the independence of Gran Colombia, the super-republic led by Simón Bolívar and which claimed sovereignty over the countries we know today as Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador and Panama.
