UK Foreign Policy and the Future of UK-Latin American Relations

calendarclock - (GMT)


Lindsay Croisdale-Appleby, Principal Private Secretary to the Foreign Secretary, Foreign & Commonwealth Office

Ever since the Foreign Secretary laid out the UK's renewed foreign policy towards Latin America in his November 2010 Canning House lecture, the UK has begun its most ambitious effort to strengthen ties within the region in two hundred years.

Against this backdrop, Lindsay Croisdale-Appleby, Principal Private Secretary to the Foreign Secretary, will speak to the RUSI Under 35 Forum about UK foreign policy and on-going government efforts to promote the UK's renewed plans for regional engagement in Latin America. In particular, this research seminar will focus on how the UK can further develop existing partnerships on international security, trade, and human rights across Latin America and will consider some of the major challenges that the UK is likely to face in this endeavour. The session will then open up for wider discussion about current UK foreign policy and will be followed by a networking drinks reception.

Lindsay Croisdale-Appleby joined the Foreign & Commonwealth Office in 1996 and served in Latin America and at the UK missions to the EU and the UN before being appointed Principal Private Secretary to Foreign Secretary William Hague. In November 2012, Mr Appleby will take up the appointment of Her Majesty's Ambassador to the Republic of Colombia.
