19 April @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

HJS-event-banner-generic-image

At a time of alarming global instability, amid shocking terrorist attacks in Europe and mounting tensions between the USA and North Korea, a clear and focused foreign and defence policy is ever more critical.

Now that UK’s departure from the EU is underway, what happens next? Against this unpredictable geopolitical backdrop, Britain’s position in the world needs to be recalibrated to take account of a range of new realities. Now is the time to move forward, to define a positive, outward looking, role in this post-Brexit world.

The Henry Jackson Society, is delighted to invite you to an event with Former Foreign Secretary The Rt Hon. the Lord Owen CH FRCP and former diplomat David Ludlow who will discuss their new book British Foreign Policy after Brexit. They will examine what lies ahead, encompassing a diplomatic, security, development and trade agenda based on hard-headed realism. Together they will argue that Britain’s global role and influence can be enhanced, rather than diminished, post-Brexit.

The Rt Hon Lord Owen CH FRCP was a Member of Parliament for Plymouth for 26 years from 1966-92. Under Labour Governments, he served as Navy Minister, Health Minister and Foreign Secretary. He was co-founder of the Social Democratic Party and its Leader from 1983-87 and 1988-90. He was created a Life Baron – Lord Owen of the City of Plymouth – in 1992 and sits as an independent social democrat in the House of Lords.

 

David Ludlow’s career has spanned both government, in the Diplomatic Service and international finance, where he held a range of senior roles in corporate and investment banking, including with Standard Chartered Bank and Citigroup in the Middle East. Originally from Northern Ireland, David completed his education at Cambridge University. During his career he has been based in Moscow, Brussels, Geneva and Dubai and prior to joining UK Export Finance he had worked extensively in Central and Eastern Europe and across the Middle East.
