November 3rd, 2022 12:00PM -1:00PM

British Prime Minister Liz Truss took office embracing a platform of tax cuts for the wealthy and deregulation to try to spur growth for the struggling UK economy. Instead of growth and stability, the UK saw financial and political chaos as policies were reversed and Truss was forced to resign after just six weeks. The political and economic turmoil of Brexit claimed yet another British Prime Minister. What does Truss’s resignation mean for Britain and the world?
Join the World Affairs Council on November 3 at 12 PM for a virtual discussion with Prof. Anand Menon of Kings College to assess the challenges facing the next prime minister and the impact on Britain’s global role.
