On 4 July, Megan Karlshoej-Pedersen, Research and Policy Assistant of the Remote Warfare Programme, presented at a Political Studies Association conference entitled “Continuity and Change in the Trump Presidency” at the British Library in London. The conference brought together postgraduate and early career researchers and provided a varied analysis of both domestic and foreign policies of the Trump administration.

Megan presented on the political consequences of working with partners in remote warfare who may not share the US’ long-term objectives. She drew on the RWP’s report on the political implications of remote warfare, “No Such Thing as a Quick Fix: The Aspiration-Capabilities Gap in British Remote Warfare” which was released in July last year. Libya, Syria and Iraq were used as case studies.
