The results of the US Presidential election and the impact on global security will be a main focus of debate at next week’s UK Security Expo taking place from 30 Nov – 1 Dec at London’s Olympia.
In November 2015, the Economist Intelligence Unit had a Trump Presidency as number 6 in its top 10 global risks. Philip Ingram, MBE and Editor, Security News Desk comments in a recent report:
“It is clear we remain in a time of global uncertainty; the shock of the Trump victory and his emerging administration, combined with what could happen in upcoming polls and elections across Europe, is just adding to that.”
Bob Rose, former Director Security of ADS Group added:
“There is no doubt that there will be an initial period of uncertainty. Trump’s comments on NATO and bolstering the US military services will in itself cause concern around the globe.”
Dr Dave Sloggett, Independent Academic, Author & Visiting Research Fellow at Oxford University will moderate a panel running as part of the Global Counter Terrorism conference which will debate the implications for global security from the incoming Trump Presidency.
Dr Sloggett will be joined on the panel by Professor David H Dunn, Professor in International Politics, University of Birmingham, Edward Lucas, Senior Editor, The Economist and Senior vice-president, The Centre for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) and Margaret Gilmore, Writer, Broadcaster and Analyst and Senior Associate Fellow, Royal United Services Institute (RUSI).
Peter Jones, Chief Executive, UK Security Expo added:
“We have a lot of unknowns. It is clear UK Security Expo comes at the perfect time and the Special Grand Debate on the Global Counter Terrorism conference will open up a wider discussion on the implications of Trump’s Presidency for the global security market.”
