The Economics of National Defence in an Age of Austerity: One Year on from the SDSR

Chatham House, London

International Security Department, UK Defence


This event will look at the UK defence environment one year after the Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR). It will ask what lessons have been learned in the past year; where did the conclusions of the SDSR stand up, where could they have been improved, and how can answers to these questions inform the development of UK force structures? This event will also consider the impact over the next 2-5 years of ongoing military operations on the defence industry, as well as other short-term factors that might impact the next SDSR.

This event forms part of the series on The Economics of UK Security and Defence Policy.

Attendance is strictly by invitation only.
