UK and the World: Governing in an Age of Uncertainty

Chatham House, London

Europe Programme

Participants

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

Overview

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.
