BFBS Radio Sitrep: Review of the Year 2019 podcast

Presented by Kate Gerbeau with BFBS Defence Analyst Christopher Lee, guest speakers include: Professor Michael Clarke, Professor Paul Rogers, Lucy Fisher and Simon Marks.

Issued discussed by the panel of experts include:

  • The state of British defence at the end of 2019 – With a newly-elected government and a UK Prime Minister with a new mandate, we’ll be asking what this means for defence and the Armed Forces.
  • Another big question – Who will join the armed forces of the future?
  • The 2020 US Presidential Election – What does America want to do (or have to do) with its armed forces in the coming year? Where does the UK feature in these plans? 
  • Climate change – Sure to grab the headlines in 2020.  But will nations start to take it more seriously as a threat to security?
  • Current and future threats – What is the perceived national security threat as we go into 2020?  What is the threat to NATO today?
