Join us and the British American Security Information Council (BASIC) for an engaging panel discussion looking at the future of Trident and what it could mean for the UK's role in the world. We will explore the highly-charged domestic debate, how this relates to other British defense and foreign policies, and the international context within which this debate is taking place.
The controversy around Britain's nuclear deterrent sits at the heart of the issue of the UK’s national security, and for some, its historical identity. To explore this fascinating dynamic, we are delighted to welcome the following panellists to the discussion:
Shatabhisha Shetty, Deputy Director and co-founder of the European Leadership Network (ELN)
Rear Admiral John Gower CB OBE, former Assistant Chief of Defence Staff for Nuclear & Chemical, Biological, responsible for nuclear policy within the Ministry of Defence
Paul Ingram, BASIC executive director
Dr. Denise Garcia (Chair), Sadeleer Research Faculty and Associate Professor of Political Science and International Affairs at Northeastern University
This will also serve as a great networking event to meet like-minded young professionals and policy experts over some refreshments. We look forward to having what will undoubtedly be an informative and constructive discussion on an important security concern.
