As the new Biden administration articulates its foreign policy for the middle class, the United Kingdom, in the wake of Brexit, is also rethinking its own international trade policy for the first time since the 1970s. How well a country manages to align foreign economic policy, such as trade and investment, with broader domestic and foreign policy and security aims is key in a 21st century marked by rising geo-economic competition. 

Join us for a conversation featuring the British Ambassador Dame Karen Pierce, former World Bank president Robert B. Zoellick, and the co-authors of two important new reports—Carnegie’s Making U.S. Foreign Policy Work Better for the Middle Class and LSE IDEAS’s Economic Diplomacy Commission—to discuss how the U.S. and the UK can deepen cooperation around the evolving challenges of globalization. 

This event is being co-organized with LSE IDEAS
