CFID Launches "Healthier, Safer, More Prosperous: The Case for British Leadership in International Development"

CFID is pleased to be jointly launching with Save the Children a collection of short essays reflecting a number of Conservative voices on international development. As the UK seeks to define its new role on the world stage, thinkers from across party lines are considering what the foreign policy agenda of a ‘Global Britain’ should look like. At this moment of reflection, we are delighted to provide a platform to Conservative parliamentarians who believe that a Global Britain is a compassionate Britain, and that the case for leadership in international development is grounded in our values and our national interest, as well as the interests of the world’s most disadvantaged people.

Where: ICC Birmingham : Castle Fine Art Gallery

When: Tuesday 2 October 2018 2130 - 2300hrs
