In his lecture, Luke will explore the economic and political fall-out from the "Panama Papers" - the unprecedented leak of millions of files from one of the world's largest offshore law firms - and its implications for the global banking and finance industries, their organisations and institutions.

With the scandal linking some of the world's most powerful individuals and companies, Luke will provide his own unique analysis into the leak's causes and consequences and what it reveals about the transfer of wealth across international economies and borders, as well as the extent to which financial organisations facilitated its operations.
Speaker(s): Luke Harding, Senior international correspondent, Guardian News & Media
Luke Harding is a journalist, writer and award-winning correspondent with the Guardian. He has reported from Delhi, Berlin and Moscow and covered wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria. Between 2007 and 2011 he was the Guardian's Moscow bureau chief. The Kremlin expelled him from the country in the first case of its kind since the Cold War. This was in part because of his reporting on the 2006 polonium murder of the Russian dissident Alexander Litvinenko.

His new book "A Very Expensive Poison: The Definitive Story of the Murder of Litvinenko and Russia's War with the West" is published on March 17, 2016 by Guardian Faber. It follows a British public inquiry into Litvinenko's death which concluded that Vladimir Putin had 'probably approved' the London operation which saw two Kremlin assassins put radioactive poison in a teapot.

His previous book "The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man" was published in February 2014 by Vintage Books in the US and by Guardian Faber in the UK. It has been translated into twenty languages. Oliver Stone's movie Snowden, based on the book, is due to for release in the US and Europe in 2016.

Luke is the author of three others non-fiction books. They are "The Liar: The Fall of Jonathan Aitken" (1997), nominated for the Orwell Prize; and "WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy" (2011), both written with David Leigh. The film rights to Wikileaks were sold to DreamWorks and the film, The Fifth Estate, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Daniel Bruhl, came out in 2013. "Mafia State: How One Reporter Became an Enemy of the Brutal New Russia appeared in 2011 in the UK, and as "Expelled" in the US in 2012.

Luke lives in Hertfordshire, UK, with his wife, the freelance journalist Phoebe Taplin, and their two children
