Britain’s Global Future: the diplomatic impact of UK civil society

12th July 2017
  • ResPublica

ResPublica is launching its latest report on British soft power and the vital role of institutions in British foreign policy. It explores the unique position of British institutions in stabilising nations and how, when properly configured and supported, institutions such as the BBC, British Council, universities and museums, can provide mediation in some of the most socially, culturally and economically fragmented parts of the world.

The event will feature a panel discussion, with the following confirmed speakers:

  • Stephen Gethins MP, Shadow SNP Spokesperson for Europe
  • Crispin Blunt MP, Acting Chair of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee (invited)
  • Anthony Smith CMG, CEO of the Westminster Foundation for Democracy
  • Caroline Nursey, CEO of BBC Media Action
  • Sir Ciarán Devane, Chief Executive of the British Council

Joining us will be a diverse range of senior representatives from across national and local government, the media and industry. Please register for your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. To inquire for tickets, email events@respublica.org.uk.
