Event description
Britain’s Security: How would Labour defend the UK and use our influence abroad? Hosted by the Fabians and Fabian International Policy Group

About this Event

Global politics is rapidly changing and increasingly uncertain. The post-war international order is at risk from populist leaders and rising revisionist powers such as Russia and China. The character of warfare is also changing. New technology has enabled rogue states and non-state actors to exert themselves in new ways, whilst conventional civil wars, terrorism and humanitarian crisis remain a persistent challenge to peace and security across the world.

Most would agree that a Labour government would seek to maintain and enhance peace throughout the world. But for this to happen, Labour needs to think carefully about how we can best develop the peacekeeping role of the United Nations and the effectiveness of NATO. With Britain leaving the EU and America wanting Europe to contribute more to its own defence, there is a need for us to consider what military co-operation a future Labour Government would have with other European countries. 

Confirmed speakers include:

Nia Griffith MP (shadow defence secretary)

Wayne David MP (shadow defence minister)

Paul Mason (The Guardian)

Cllr Peymana Assad (Harrow Council)

This event is free to attend.
