What does the election of Joe Biden mean for UK foreign policy? On one hand the president-elect has called for an end to US support for the Saudi-led war on Yemen, yet on the other he appears committed to escalating tensions with China. All of which will have major ramifications for British foreign policy. Boris Johnson's unveiling of a huge military spending increase seems designed to please the new US president and demonstrate that the UK remains a devoted ally.
As Donald Trump's tenure comes to an end are we expecting huge shifts in foreign policy or more of the same?
Join us for this fringe session of the North West Connected conference to discuss all of this and how the anti-war movement can organise against it with:
- Richard Burgon MP
- Lindsey German
- Sarah Cundy (Manchester Momentum Vice Chair)
- Jenny Clegg (Greater Manchester Stop the War)
- Rashida Islam (Greater Manchester Stop the War)
