About

British Foreign Policy and the role of Parliament: perspectives from the inside Join us on Thursday 30th November at 6:00pm in Amory Room 501 for this special guest lecture, followed by a reception. What is the role of parliament with respect to British foreign policy? What should it be? There are many roles that parliament plays both formal and informal from select committees and all-party parliamentary groups to the engagement of MPs by thinktanks and party foreign policy groups. We welcome three expert speakers who have seen the work of parliament from the inside. We will ask whether it is effective in holding government to account or what is the role of special interests, both domestic and foreign. Developments in Ukraine, Central Asia and the Middle East will be discussed. Luke Pollard is the Member of Parliament for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport and currently serves as Labour's Shadow Minister for the Armed Forces. Charlotte Leslie is a former Conservative MP and director of the Conservative Middle East Council. Richard Foord MP is the member for Tiverton and Honiton, the Liberal Democrat’s defence spokesperson, and a member of the all-party parliamentary group on Ukraine. David Blagden is Senior Lecturer in International Security at the University of Exeter and served as Specialist Adviser to a Parliamentary Select Committee over 2022-23 John Heathershaw is Professor of International Relations at the University Exeter and has given evidence to select committees on several occasions.
