The Event

The general election 2024, in the UK, will take place at a time of geopolitical uncertainty, sandwiched between the European and French Parliamentary elections on one side, and the US elections on the other.  Any new government will face intense pressures home and abroad against an ever-shifting global landscape.

Will the new government's agenda stand up to the challenges ahead?

Join our expert panel of industry leaders for a lively discussion on the challenges facing the new government, including domestic and foreign policy, human rights controversies, planning reform, environment, migration and windfall taxation.
