Events

Our flagship event series are our Geostrategy Forum and Whitehall Briefings, chaired by Dr Carl Stephen Patrick Hunter OBE. These exclusive forums convene monthly in the In and Out Naval and Military Club in London to discuss topical geopolitical, geoeconomic and geostrategic issues.

We also host other public and private events at the Houses of Parliament and other venues in London, as well as online. We welcome parliamentarians, policymakers, foreign diplomats and officials, the press, experts, businesspeople, and the wider public – both nationally and internationally.
