GIC Public Lecture: Adventures in Diplomacy - Life as a British Diplomat

10 November 2021, 1.00 PM - 10 November 2021, 2.00 PM

Mr Nicholas Hopton, HM Ambassador to Libya

The UK continues to be a major player in global affairs and its diplomats are as involved as ever in the conduct of International relations. But what does a diplomat actually do in the modern world? And how do diplomats seek to make a difference and advance national interests in the climate-challenged, post- Brexit, pandemic-scarred and conflict-riven world in which we live?

Drawing on experience from over three decades as a British diplomat, Nicholas Hopton looks at these and other questions and offers a personal, anecdotal take on the ups and downs of a career in foreign policy.
