Drawing on the conclusions of the first half of the evidence sessions for the LSE Economic Diplomacy Commission, an LSE IDEAS initiative that aims to facilitate strategic discussion and evaluation of the future of the UK’s economic diplomacy, this panel discusses how foreign and economic policy in the coming years is likely to affect UK society and the economy.
What does economic diplomacy encompass and how can the UK use it to its advantage as it navigates economic and foreign policy in a post-EU and a post-pandemic world?
What should be the UK’s aims in setting out trade and foreign investment policies outside of the European Union framework?
And what is the UK’s capacity in re-shaping globalization and international institutions and norms for a more sustainable and equitable global community?
This event is held in collaboration with LSE IDEAS.
