The Missing Argument? Implications of the UK’s EU Referendum for Foreign Policy

Overview

On 23 June 2016, British voters will go to the polls to decide on whether or not to leave the European Union. As the campaigns intensify, there is still little debate on the implications of a Brexit for UK and EU foreign, security and defence policies.

Participants will discuss the main risks and opportunities involved, as well as identify areas for multilateral and/or bilateral cooperation. In particular, they will also look at the roles of the UK, Germany, France and the EU in providing security in Europe.

This workshop is the first in a series on ‘the interrelationship of UK and EU foreign policy: costs and benefits’ led by Professor Richard Whitman and organized with the support of the European Social and Research Council (ESRC) under the auspices of its UK in a Changing Europe initiative.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
