It addresses a series of questions highly relevant to the debate on the UK’s future relationship with the EU: 

  • What impact, if any, does leaving the EU have on the UK's foreign relations and standing within international multilateral organisations?
  • What are the costs/benefits for the EU and its member states of a UK withdrawal or renegotiated relationship with the EU’s foreign, security and defence policies?
  • And how might policy makers, practitioners, the media and public make sense of this challenge and navigate the associated issues?

This project is led by Professor Richard Whitman, and is in partnership with the European Social and Research Council.
