On 10 December Abigail Watson, Remote Warfare Programme's Research Manager, presented at a workshop organised by the Department of Politics and the Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre, at the University of York. The workshop brought together scholars and practitioners who want to explore changing ideas and practices of Britain’s engagement with Africa in the context of Brexit and broader global power shifts. In particular, its aim was to investigate the place of Africa in understandings of Britain’s role in the world and to consider how these are reflected in practices of and responses to contemporary British engagement with Africa. 

Abigail presentation focused on the security component of the UK's Africa policy in a post-Brexit era.
