The All Party Parliamentary Group for Defence and Diplomacy in the Middle East & North Africa was established in 2012. Its purpose is to examine current and future diplomatic responses, defence needs and actions across the MENA and near neighbours, with the Royal United Services Institute’s assistance bringing strategic vision from expert and internationally significant interlocutors into Parliament to inform debate. Members of RUSI, by kind invitation of the APPG Chair Dai Havard MP, are invited to attend the programme of meetings throughout the parliamentary year.
