Resource description

With the UK embroiled in an ever lengthening conflict in Libya and commentators questioning the UK military’s ability to carry out their commitments after 2015 following the cuts made in the Strategic Defence and Security Review it is surprising that the origins of Cameron’s foreign policy remain under researched. Pete Redford, together with Matt Beech, finds that Cameron’s foreign policy approach is much more pragmatically liberal in its outlook (as evidence by the UK’s recent intervention in Libya) than that of the Conservative leaders that have come before him.
