Speaking at Chatham House, 24 May

I'm speaking at an event on 'International Affairs: Foreign Policy and Defence Implications of Brexit' at Chatham House on 24 May. 

Professor Matthew Uttley, Chair in Defence Studies, King's College London
Dr Tim Oliver, Dahrendorf Fellow on Europe-North America Relations, LSE
Professor Richard Whitman, Visiting Senior Fellow, Europe Programme, Chatham House; Director of the Global Europe Centre, University of Kent

A collection of articles in the latest issue of International Affairs will examine the implications of a possible Brexit on various aspects of UK foreign and defence policy.
At this launch event, three contributors to the issue will offer their analyses: Richard Whitman will argue that whatever the result of the referendum, it will be a pivotal moment in determining the UK's future diplomatic strategy; Tim Oliver will look at what a Brexit could mean for US–UK and US–EU relations; and Matthew Uttley will focus on the implications of Brexit on defence procurement and defence industries in the UK and other EU member states.
