Ten years on from the invasion of Iraq, at the end of what President Obama described as ‘a decade of war’, British foreign policy stands at a crossroads. From the rise of China to relations with Europe, policy-makers will face very different challenges in the middle of this decade than were evident in the middle of the last.

From climate change and terrorism to nuclear proliferation and the fate of the world’s poor, what does a progressive UK foreign policy look like in what many predict will be an ‘Asian century’?

Shadow Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander visits the RSA to explore how UK foreign policy can best influence tomorrow.

Speaker: Douglas Alexander MP, UK Shadow Foreign Secretary.

Discussant: Dr Ian Kearns, Co-Founder and Director, European Leadership Network.
Chair: Matthew Taylor, RSA Chief Executive.
