Conflict and Global Britain with the HALO Trust
Global conflict is more complex than ever. It costs the global economy $14.5 trillion. The World Bank estimates that by 2030, two thirds of the world’s poor will live in proximity to conflict. We are entering what has been framed ‘a decade of impunity’ after a decade of isolationism that followed a decade of interventionism. But what role should a ‘Global Britain’ play when it comes to taking action on conflict? This panel will explore the humanitarian, political and economic case for the UK’s future conflict strategy.
