Rosemary Hollis 1952 - 2020

It is with deep sadness that we share news of the passing of former CBRL trustee, Professor Rosemary Hollis.  An expert on the politics of the Middle East and conflicts in the region, Rosemary brought hugely valuable insight to CBRL’s committee of management on which she served from 2014 2018.  She combined a clarity of analysis and sharp wit with a great human warmth. Her contribution to CBRL was considerable, both as a dedicated colleague and as generous financial supporter, enabling us to launch our Master’s dissertation prize in 2019We were honoured to host a lecture in October of last year where she presented the research of her latest bookSurviving the Story, the culmination of her work leading the Olive Tree Programme at City University London. Rosemary was a dear friend and supporter to so many, she will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with her family and close friends at this difficult time.
