The event is a public roundtable discussion on the lessons and legacies of the Second World War and its aftermath for relations between the UK and France today. We will focus in particular on political, diplomatic, strategic and military relations between the two countries as the UK prepares to leave the EU and as both the UK and France head to the polls in forthcoming elections.

This roundtable is free to attend, but registration is required:



The roundtable is part of a wider two-year project funded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh on ‘Relations between Britain and France in World War Two’, led by Dr Rogelia Pastor-Castro and Dr Karine Varley, University of Strathclyde
