Cristina de Esperanza Picardo, a member of the Department of Political Economy, will be sharing her expertise at a panel on security and geopolitics as part of the Young Indo-Pacific conference.

Also speaking at the event will be Professor Harsh Pant, from the India Institute at King’s.

The event is taking place across three days, from 26-28 November, and will feature a series of panels and networking events focussed on the EU and Indo-Pacific. The conference aims to promote a broader understanding of the EU’s interactions with the Indo-Pacific region, and to look ahead at the direction in which key relationships between the EU and Indo-Pacific states and stakeholders will go.

The event is being organised by three student-led and grassroots think tanks: Polis180, European Guanxi and STEAR.
