PS21 Update: Week Ending October 30


This week PS21 hosted two more excellent events in London and New York. To celebrate the launch of his book ‘Facing Facts: Is British Power Diminishing?’ Peter Foster was joined by Mike Harwood and Catherine Fieschi for a panel discussion moderated by Tom Bruxner. Peter’s book can be purchased from Amazon. In New York, PS21 Executive Director Peter Apps, moderated a discussion on the ISIS War, with Asha Castleberry, Nelly Lahoud and Ned Parker. You can watch a recording of that discussion here.

 Our Upcoming Events:
From the SNP landslide to the rise of Jeremy Corbyn – and, of course, #piggate – 2015 has been a seismic and unexpectedly entertaining year in British politics. What could possibly come next? At the very least, the EU referendum should keep things interesting. The discussion will be chaired by Jennifer Brindisi, political consultant and London Executive Director of Young Professionals in Foreign Policy. The panellists will include Jonn Elledge, editor of CityMetric and journalist at New Statesman, Robert Colvile, freelance writer and commentator and author of ‘The Great Acceleration’ (2016), Sophie Gaston, head of communications, Demos andGideon Skinner, head of political communications at Ipsos MORI
