...Foreign Affairs Committee in St Andrews
Friday 11 May 2018
The University hosted MPs on the influential House of Commons’ Foreign Affairs Committee this week (Thursday
10 May) for a series of engagements.
During the visit the Committee held an event to gather the views of the public on their understanding and
interpretation of what ‘Global Britain’ means for the UK’s foreign policy strategy.
Committee chair Tom Tugendhat MP said: “Now is the time to take stock of the UK’s role in the world, not just
because the UK is discussing how we leave the EU, but also in light of changes in the international system and
the global balance of power.
“This is a crucial time, and we have invited students, academics and local business to come and tell us what
Global Britain means to them and how it matters to them.”
