Event description

Description

Britain’s place in the world – finance, trade, migration, development, climate change and institutions.

The UK is redefining its relationships with international partners. As we leave the EU, our interactions will change: not only with the other 27 Member States but with many governments and international organisations for whom our EU identity has shaped their approach to working with us. This will also affect the way that international companies, investors, non-governmental organization and workers view the UK. What are the opportunities and threats that this represents? How should we approach the task of resetting these partnerships? What insights are there for the UK in the experience of other nations? Join leading scholars from the Blavatnik School of Government to hear what their research tells us about the challenge ahead.

Through attending this masterclass you will understand:

  1. How to use the experiences of other nations to add insight into your work area;

  2. How the UK is perceived; and

  3. How these perceptions can work towards/against our goals.

Professor Ngaire Woods is the inaugural Dean of the Blavatnik School of Government and Professor of Global Economic Governance. She is a regular contributor to public debates on the functioning and governance of the international economic system. Professor Sir Paul Collier is a development economist whose best-selling books “The Bottom Billion” and “The Plundered Planet” have been required reading for policy-makers seeking to address the challenges of development. More recently, together with Professor Alexander Betts, he was named as one of Foreign Policy magazines Top 100 Thinkers for their work on refugees. Dr. Thomas Hale is an expert in the politics of international climate change negotiations. Nominated in 2015 as one of the Top 30 climate change thinkers and doers, he has worked closely with a consortium of leading cities and non-state actors to demonstrate the role these groups can play in tackling climate change.
