Defending Global Britain in a Competitive Age


On 16 March 2021, the Government published the first outcome of its Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy.

This inquiry will explore whether this document, “Global Britain in a Competitive Age”, provides clear strategic direction for the UK’s Armed Forces.

It will then assess whether a forthcoming Defence Command Paper delivers the capabilities required to enable them to fulfil the role expected of them.
