UK and the World: Governing in an Age of Uncertainty
Alex Evans, Fellow, Center on International Cooperation, New York University
David Steven, Fellow, Center on International Cooperation, New York University
Chair: Dr Robin Niblett, Director, Chatham House
Global issues barely got a mention during the election campaign - but the new coalition will not be able to ignore them in government. The speakers will explore the UK's response to a volatile and highly uncertain global environment, arguing that the government needs to define its international mission as managing global risks on behalf of British citizens and undertake a deep-seated programme of reform to meet its policy goals.
The speakers have co-authored a paper as part of Chatham House project on Rethinking the UK's International Ambitions and Choices.
