Inaugural Jubilee Dialogue
Arab Spring two years on (WP1253)


The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is committed to leading dialogue and debate on the key issues shaping the world.

‘The Jubilee Dialogues’ are a flagship series of debates bringing together leading thinkers to discuss some of the major drivers behind transformation in societies across the world.

We want to share the insights of our global network with experts both within and outside Government, and hear other perspectives to strengthen our mutual understanding of international issues.

The participants included business leaders, journalists and academics, alongside our Ministers, researchers and senior officials. Themes of the dialogues will feature in a publication on the UK’s foreign policy priorities which will include articles by a wide range of experts, including participants. The publication will be launched by the Foreign Secretary at the Leadership Conference in May 2013, in partnership with FIRST publishing. It will be distributed to over 100,000 opinion leaders across the world.
