Video Event | Is Britain Still a Global Intelligence Power?

This event will now premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Monday, June 8.

Amid serious shifts in geopolitics, the last decade has been turbulent for the United Kingdom. Now that Britain has left the European Union, both domestic and international audiences are rethinking what the country’s international role could become. Is Britain’s traditional place in global affairs waning or enduring?

Join Hudson Institute for a conversation with the former Chief of the Secret Intelligence Service, popularly known as MI6, Sir John Sawers GCMG, on how he sees Britain’s role in world affairs moving into the future.

Is Britain still a global intelligence power? What are emerging threats Britain and America need to focus on? How is the global map of threats and opportunities changing? Sir John Sawers will offer his perspective on Britain’s impact and role from his unique perspective. Hudson Research Fellow Ben Judah will moderate the conversation.
