The 'Special Relationship' between the UK and the US - past, present and future

31 August, 2016
Dalhousie Building - Old Hawkhill, Dundee, DD1 5EN, 6pm-7pm

This is a joint event with the University of Dundee.

Following its first use by Sir Winston Churchill in his famous 1946 speech, the 'Special Relationship' is a phrase used to describe the exceptionally close political, diplomatic, cultural, economic, military and historical relations between the United Kingdom and the United States.

Both the UK and US have close relationships with many other nations, but the level of cooperation between us in areas of economic, commercial, intelligence and military activities has been described as ''unparalleled'' among major powers.

We have been close allies in numerous military and political conflicts throughout the 20th and 21st centuries including World Wars I & II, the Korean War, the Cold War, the Gulf War, and the War on Terror.

In this exciting event, held in the 70th anniversary year of Churchill coining the phrase, a very special guest speaker will discuss the Special Relationship between the UK and the US – past, present and future.
