Foreign Press Association

For many newspaper and TV editors around the world who send some of their best journalists to report from London, it is the battle of political and economic ideas here that drives much of the news agenda. Might Scotland actually vote for independence? Is it really possible that the UK could leave the European Union? What role could the Commonwealth have in addressing global concerns on security, economic growth and the environment? Of course the Foreign Press Association has to be involved in the Battle of Ideas.

"Although 'battle' suggests destruction, these were some of the most constructive debates I've taken part in. This was civilised conflict in the best sense of both words."
Julian Baggini, author, Welcome to Everytown: A Journey into the English Mind, and The Ego Trick
