Speaker: Professor Michael Clarke, Former Director General, RUSI

As the world prepares for Donald Trump’s inauguration as the 45th president of the United States in January, the British defence establishment will need to consider a number of challenges that will bring. It remains to be seen whether the rhetoric of the past twelve months – sometimes described as ‘isolationist’ – is matched by reality when he assumes office, but even a policy that reduces US commitments to discharge the country’s duties as a ‘world policeman’ is not as unprecedented as is commonly assumed, and it is not always disastrous. Yet this does not necessarily change the core of the UK–US relationship, which many scholars have claimed is determined by the personal interactions between prime minister and president, and the compatibility of their personalities. Join Michael Clarke to consider the implication for Global Security during Trump time.
