Old Friends, New World: The US and the UK in the 21st Century
On the day of one of the UK's most highly anticipated elections, Lord Patten of Barnes will address the state of the US-UK relationship and what this relationship means for the world.
Spanning his career as a leader of the Conservative Party, the Governor of Hong Kong, and now as Chancellor of Oxford University, Lord Patten combines his insider knowledge about British politics with the international perspective of a diplomat to track the evolving special relationship between the two countries.
This lecture is the inaugural R. Kirk Underhill Lecture. The R. Kirk Underhill Lecture brings a leading figure from political or scholarly circles in the United Kingdom to UC Berkeley to discuss British affairs and their implications for the United States.
This event is open to the public and is sponsored by the Anglo-American Studies Program at the Institute of Governmental Studies. This program is co-sponsored by the Center for British Studies, the Institute of European Studies and the Institute of International Studies.
