Invitation – Foreign Policy Talk with David Wallace, British Embassy Berlin

Invitation – Foreign Policy Talk with David Wallace, British Embassy Berlin

With the exit of the United Kingdom the EU is going to lose one of its heavyweights in foreign policy. How will the UK and EU work together on issues of foreign policy in the future? Will they still speak with one voice in the world?

We have invited David Wallace
Political Counsellor, British Embassy Berlin

Friday, 27 April 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in Berlin

to discuss these and other questions with us. Our foreign policy talks take place in an informal setting with a rather small group of people (around 30), therefore please register with
until 21 April 2018.

The event is open to all young people who are interested in current foreign policy issues. In case there are more registrations than seats, members of IFAIR e.V. will be treated preferentially. Please note that the event is under Chatham-House-Rule in order to ensure an open discussion, and will be in English.

Our evening will also be an opportunity to meet and get to know IFAIR, our team and a group of young people interested in international relations.


We are looking forward to seeing you in Berlin.
