A collection of articles in the latest issue of International Affairs will examine the implications of a possible Brexit on various aspects of UK foreign and defence policy.

At this launch event, three contributors to the issue will offer their analyses: Richard Whitman will argue that whatever the result of the referendum, it will be a pivotal moment in determining the UK's future diplomatic strategy; Tim Oliver will look at what a Brexit could mean for US–UK and US–EU relations; and Matthew Uttley will focus on the implications of Brexit on defence procurement and defence industries in the UK and other EU member states.

This event will be followed by a reception.
