The former Secretary of State for Defence will reflect on his own experiences, and on relationships between politicians, policymakers and the military, to explore the current challenges about how Britain can match its aspirations to play a role on the international stage as a Permanent Member of the Security Council, and one of the leading members in the NATO alliance, against a background of continuing shortage of resources, and reductions in military capability.
