French IR body celebrates in style with day-long seminar, awards and evening gala
‘Thirty years ago, the world was such a different place: test missiles weren’t commonly flying over neighboring nations, the person living in the White House was unaware of the power of Twitter, the UK was still part of the EU (at least more or less!), China was an underdeveloped country and bitcoin had yet to be invented. These things are now all part of our new reality and we have learned to adapt,’ said Cliff chair Chris Hollis, in his welcome speech at the French IR association’s annual seminar.
