The inquiry aims to determine what the risks and vulnerabilities are to the UK’s economic security and will scrutinise whether the Government has the necessary powers and capabilities in place to intervene in the economy on national security grounds, to enforce economic deterrence measures and enhance economic resilience.

In December the Committee reported on the growing economic and political security threats from ransomware. In this first session of our new inquiry, academic experts in foreign affairs and international political economy will offer an overview of the economic security issues and risks facing the UK, the international context, and how effective the Government is in formulating and enforcing security-driven economic interventions such as investment screening and sanctions.
