Diplomatic Hour: In Conversation with the Slovenian Ambassador

On the 27th March 2024, The British Foreign Policy Group was privileged to host Her Excellency Ms Simona Leskovar, Ambassador of Slovenia to the United Kingdom, for a closed-door roundtable focused on some of the biggest challenges facing both the UK and Slovenia.

The event brought together a group of UK-based experts, policymakers, business- and thought-leaders with an interest in the bilateral relationship, the wider Western Balkan region, and European security more broadly. As Slovenia marks the 20-year anniversary of accession to NATO and the European Union, we explored how cooperation between the UK, Slovenia and the wider European neighbourhood is more important than ever. The roundtable was run under the ‘Chatham House’ rule and stimulated an engaging conversation around Slovenia’s own perspectives on some of the geopolitical challenges facing the world.

This event was part of BFPG’s ‘Diplomatic Hour’ event series, which will see Ambassadors from across the UK’s most important global partners come together with stakeholders from across the foreign policy sphere in a series of public events and private roundtables.
