The Institute for Government was delighted to welcome Lord Owen and David Ludlow authors of the book British Foreign Policy After Brexit.
The authors discussed key themes from the book and were in conversation with Bronwen Maddox, Director of the Institute for Government. This was followed by a Q and A session with the audience.
The Rt Hon Lord Owen was a Labour MP for 26 years from 1966-92, serving as Navy Minister, Health Minister and Foreign Secretary in several governments. He was a co-founder of the Social Democratic Party, and its Leader from 1983-87, and the continuing SDP from 1988-90.
David Ludlow’s career has spanned the public and private sectors. After stints in the British Embassy in Moscow at the end of the Gorbachev era, he spent two years working with David Owen at the International Conference on the Former Yugoslavia.
