Brexit, European Security & International Governance

The UK’s vote on 23 June 2016 to leave the EU has come at a critical time for Europe, representing an unprecedented challenge to policy makers. Negotiating the treaties and deals of a post-Brexit world is being conducted in the context of mounting threats to long-term peace and stability within Europe and on its borders.

Through the publication of original evidence-based research, a series of workshops, seminars and roundtables, and exchanges with scholars, policy-makers and think tanks, this project seeks to examine how European security challenges can be met most effectively – in the post-Brexit era – in relation to wider shifts in international governance.  It aims to offer insights into ways in which the UK and EU, moving forward, can most effectively address some of their most pressing challenges in the realm of foreign, defence and security policy.
