In Conversation with Lisa Nandy

We are delighted to be partnering with the Coalition for Global Prosperity to co-host an event. Our event ‘In Conversation with Lisa Nandy MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs’ is set to be a fascinating discussion, exploring how the Labour party can continue to champion international development and an ethical foreign policy in Parliament. 

Together both organisations share a commitment to championing Britain as a force for good around the globe and are therefore delighted to be joined by Lisa Nandy MP, who as Shadow Foreign Secretary is a vocal campaigner for the critical need for Britain to show global leadership and promote and defend human rights. The event will be an excellent opportunity to hear Lisa Nandy discuss what Global Britain means to her as she shares her expertise and explores Labour’s vision for a foreign policy fit for 2021 and beyond.
