Overview

This workshop will look at security and defence policy-making in the context of the UK domestic economic forecast. Should policy be 'foreign policy-led' or 'treasury-led'? How will resource constraints affect the forthcoming UK security and defence review? How do comparable western economies maintain their security and defence posture in times of economic stringency? And how far can improvements in efficiency and productivity alleviate the effects of macro-economic constraints?

This event is the first in the series on the Economics of UK Security and Defence Policy.
