Saint Malo at 15
Tuesday, 3 December 2013 from 18:30 to 20:00 (GMT)
On 3 and 4 December 1998, an Anglo-French summit took place at the French seaside resort of Saint Malo. On the second day of that meeting, Prime Minister Blair and President Chirac signed a historic declaration which laid the basis for the European Union to have its own defence policy for the first time.
Fifteen years to the day since the opening of that fateful summit, three of the key protagonists in that drama will come together to discuss how the declaration came about, what the ambitions of the two governments were, and the extent to which the subsequent development of the EU's Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) has helped to achieve them.
The dress code for the event is lounge suit or equivalent.
King's College London and the Commandant of the Royal College of Defence Studies will host this event at Seaford House, 37 Belgrave Square, London SW1X 8NS. This event is part of King's Policy Institute's Europe in Crisis Project led by Anand Menon, Professor of European Politics & Foreign Affairs, and Sir Nigel Sheinwald, Visiting Professor and former UK Ambassador to the EU and US.
