The rupture in Russia’s relations with the West laid bare a vastly different and unsettling narrative about the post-Cold War world. From Russia’s perspective, the fault lies with the West and stems from the enlargement of NATO and the EU, the US-led interventions in the Middle East, and a perceived lack of respect for Russia. From the Western perspective, the fault lies with Russia and is the result of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, its invasion of eastern Ukraine, and its…

While Brexit will present the UK with many challenges in coming years, it is also a unique opportunity to rethink and recast our place in the world. While we will remain committed to our NATO allies in order to defend Europe from Russian revanchism, Britain will be more flexible and better suited to adapt to global trends and challenges. In his latest report, Dr John Hemmings argues that the world is going to Asia and it’s going by sea –…

NATO: EUROPEAN SECURITY AT A TIME OF TRANSATLANTIC UNCERTAINTY

As Britain considers its relationship with Europe, European security has never been more precarious, with Russian revanchism on the rise at NATO’s borders. The subversive activities that it carries out inside Europe, and its claims on the Arctic will present the Western Alliance with real challenges. In the meantime, there are shifts inside Europe – such as the refugee crisis coming from Europe’s southern and eastern borders, which have led to both home-grown terrorism and the rise of right-wing populism.…

15th October 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Committee Room 11, House of Commons London, SW1A 0AA United Kingdom

Moneyland is the secret country of the wealthy and unscrupulous, the place where they put their assets, their children and themselves to escape scrutiny and oversight. Some 10 percent of all the money in the world has been stashed in this liminal offshore place, making it the third richest country in the world, with dramatic consequences for democracy, security and the stability of the world. Learn how the institutions of Europe and the United States have become money-laundering operations, undermining…

Global Britain and the South China Sea

Over the past 4 years, the People’s Republic of China has built a number of fortress islands in the South China Sea, across one of the world's busiest shipping lanes. The move has strategic implications for trading nations, in Europe and Asia. With more than 12% of its trade transiting the sea lane and a long sea-faring history, the United Kingdom is one of these concerned nations. Over the space of a year, three warships, the HMS Sutherland, the HMS…

The Future of ‘Global Britain’ as a ‘Seapower State’

13th November 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Committee Room 11, House of Commons London, SW1A 0AA United Kingdom

Prof. Andrew Lambert’s new book, Seapower States examines how Britain and four other seapowers used their special identities to inform their decision-making, enabling them to achieve success disproportionate to their size. Lambert shows how creating maritime identities made these states more dynamic, open, and inclusive than their lumbering continental rivals. He argues that it was only when they forgot this aspect of their identity that these nations begin to decline. By kind invitation of Bob Seely MBE MP, the Henry Jackson…

Elan Carr: Global Anti-Semitism, The View From The United States

24th October 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Committee Room 11, House of Commons London, SW1A 0AA United Kingdom

How is the US Government tackling Anti-Semitism? With growing concern over Islamist extremism, Far-Left hate speech against Jews and the rise of Neo-Nazi terrorism, Jews in the West face a nexus of ideological animosity. At the same time, liberal politicians in the US have been dogged by allegations of racism and Anti-Semitism, leading to fears that anti-Jewish sentiment is increasingly legitimised and pervading the mainstream. What is the Trump administration doing to monitor Anti-Semitism in the US? How is the…

China and the West: Where the Confrontation Between the Two Worldviews May Take Us

6th February 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Committee Room 11, House of Commons London, SW1A 0AA United Kingdom

Since taking power in China in 1949, the Chinese Communist Party has indoctrinated its citizens on a vast scale. Such indoctrination provides the basis of the CCP’s legitimacy, as it whitewashes inconvenient aspects of the country’s history and mythologises others. For the past few decades, Western capitals have viewed China primarily through an economic lens, and this has stopped them from taking principled and effective actions against Beijing. This, however, is self-justifying rhetoric that will eventually make the West compromise…

How to Argue with a Racist: History, Science, Race & Reality 

2nd March 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Committee Room 11, House of Commons London, SW1A 0AA United Kingdom

The appeal to science to strengthen racist ideologies is on the rise - and increasingly part of the public discourse on politics, migration, education, sport and intelligence. Stereotypes and myths about race are expressed not just by overt racists, but also by well-intentioned people whose experience and cultural baggage steers them towards views that are not supported by the modern study of human genetics. Even some scientists are uncomfortable expressing opinions deriving from their research where it relates to race.…
