Gideon Rachman, Chief Foreign Affairs Commentator, Financial Times
Vanessa Rossi, Senior Research Fellow, International Economics Programme, Chatham House

The speaker will argue it has weakened the prestige and power of the West, raised tensions between the US and China, weakened the international consensus supporting globalization and made it significantly harder to secure cooperative international solutions to a range of problems, from climate change to nuclear proliferation.
