Leading policymakers, military experts, academics and commentators are gathering to discuss the key defence and security challenges at an exclusive conference taking place on 9 May at Bush House, London.

An invited audience will hear a series of keynote speeches and expert panels addressing the key questions:

– How can Ukraine best be aided and fortified?

– What changes need to be made to bolster wider long-term European defence and security?

– In an era of new technology, what is the future of warfare?
