Event description
HJS is delighted to invite you to a discussion on how the UK should restructure its strategic policy to make it fit for the 21st century.

About this Event

Since the end of the Cold War, Britain established an increasingly ‘global approach’ to its foreign, security and defence policy. This approach foresaw the acceleration of globalisation, the rise of liberal democracy around the world, the continuity of Western technological ascendancy, and conditions preferable to a less cohesive and robust British nation-state. With the onset of climate change and great power competition, as well as Brexit, it is no longer clear the extent to which these core assumptions are still valid.

By kind invitation of the Rt Hon Julian Lewis MP, the Henry Jackson Society invites you to a discussion with Sir Malcolm Rifkind, a former Defence and Foreign secretary, and James Rogers, the Director of the Global Britain Programme at the Henry Jackson Society, to contemplate on how the United Kingdom should restructure its strategic policy to make it fit for the twenty-first century.
