Abstract

This event will explore the challenges, choices and opportunities faced by the UK in a complex and uncertain security environment. How can the UK prepare for a world in which no single threat dominates, but where many security challenges interact and multiply? How can and should we navigate challenges as diverse as international terrorism, an increasingly assertive Russia, or instability in North Africa and the Middle East? And how can we do so at a time of continuing public austerity and popular scepticism over the utility of military force?

This event is also the launch event for the Thinking Futures Festival 2014.  From 5.15pm, ahead of the event, a reception will take place marking this occasion.  We would be delighted if you could join us ahead of the talk at 6pm.
