Date: Thursday 23 February
Time: 17.00 GMT
Location: Imperial College London, Roderic Hill building, Executive Education teaching space. Please enter the RH building from Prince Consort Road and follow signs for Executive Education.
Moderator: Joshua Bower-Saul, Founder at Ukraine Tomorrow
- Orysia Lutsevych, Ukraine Forum Leader at Chatham House
- Harry Halem, Research Fellow, Foreign Policy and Defence at Policy Exchange
Our speakers and moderator include London-based analysts, notably in defence policy, political science, social development and on-the-ground foundation and charity experience. This includes professor and author Andy Wilson, as well as Orysia Lutsevych, leader of the Ukraine Forum at Chatham House, Harry Halem, Research Fellow, Foreign Policy and Defence at Policy Exchange, and Joshua Bower-Saul, Founder of the new UkraineTomorrow platform.
Our goal is to spark discussion among participants and contributors from London universities, think tanks, the youth of the UK, and all supporters of Ukraine.
We want to address the issues of the war, but also the challenges of the peace and how to bridge the gap to a new Ukraine.
The solemn vigil
