London Event July 29: Beyond the Strategic Defence and Security Review

Scroll down to content


As Britain’s Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) gets underway, PS21 brings together a uniquely qualified panel to discuss the defence challenges facing the UK and how they might be addressed. How should the UK handle new challenges such as a resurgent Russia and the prospect of Scottish independence? What do British people really want? And regardless of the answer, is there any option other than doing less with less?

Chair: Peter Apps: executive director, PS21

Patrick Bury: former Captain, British Army Royal Irish Regiment, now PhD candidate at the University of Exeter’s Strategy and Security Institute

Philip Thicknesse: former head of futures, UK Defence Concepts and Doctrines Centre

Tom Bruxner: British Army officer, Defense Concepts and Doctrine Center

Josh Arnold-Forster: former special advisor to John Reid MP, defence secretary 2005-2006, now strategic advisor at Hanover

Drinks from 6.30pm. Discussion from 7pm.
