Politeia

What’s Good for Foreign Policy, Good for Defence, Good for Britain?

John Baron MP, House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee
Sir Anthony Brenton KCMG, British Ambassador to Russia (2004-2008)
David Abulafia FBA, Professor of Mediterranean History, University of Cambridge

Wednesday 5th July, 7:20 – 8:20pm 

As Britain prepares for its new global role and to leave the EU, the focus will be on three pivotal areas of policy: the economy and trade, foreign affairs and defence, and security and counter-terrorism. Global economic and trade ties will be forged; the UK’s foreign and defence capabilities rethought and the common front against terror toughened.

What should the new priorities for the UK be, and how far must the policies inherited since the 1990s be adapted or dropped?

Politeia will be holding a special event to consider these questions. Speakers will include John Baron MP, House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee, Sir Anthony Brenton KCMG, British Ambassador to Russia (2004-08) and David Abulafia FBA, Papathomas Professorial Fellow of Gonville and Caius College and Professor of Mediterranean History, University of Cambridge
