Event description

Description

Historically Britain has been at the forefront of multilateral co-operation to tackle global challenges. However, following a series of foreign policy disasters in Iraq and Libya, Britain has been in a foreign policy vacuum. Now as the Brexit process begins, Britain’s future on the world stage is even more uncertain.

The world faces many global challenges, from climate change to international terrorism, nuclear proliferation, cyber-attacks, populism and a resurgence of dictatorial regimes. All whilst the USA is withdrawing from its leading role in international affairs. The world is entering a period of instability and danger, which requires a greater level of leadership and co-operation.

As Britain leaves the EU it must redefine itself on the world stage and find new ways of co-operating with the European Union and the world to resolve these global challenges.
