In a world with one military superpower in the shape of the US and two emerging economic giants in the shape of China and India, does Europe have the political will to be a major global player or is it now entering a period of irreversible decline?

Peter Sutherland is chairman of BP and president of the Federal Trust. He is a former director-general of the WTO and the GATT and a former European Commissioner.

This event is part of 'The Future of Europe Series', hosted jointly by FT Business and the European Institute, in association with the Wyndham Place Charlemagne Trust.

Bag checks will be in operation at this event. LSE therefore strongly discourages those attending this lecture from bringing bags. LSE apologises for any delays in entering the theatre caused by the bag searches.
