How will Brexit impact the EU’s foreign and security policy and future cooperation between the EU and UK in this policy domain? Does Brexit create an opportunity for more defence integration in Europe by removing the UK veto, or will the damage from losing British military capabilities be too great?

Brexit will significantly impact both EU and UK security and defence policies by removing Britain’s considerable capabilities from the EU arsenal, while closing off the access to the Union’s agencies and structures. How the EU deals with these changes, and how they affect new initiatives, will shape its ability to deal with present and future security threats. This event is the launch of the Dahrendorf Forum Working Paper “Known Unknowns: EU foreign, security, and defence policy after Brexit”.
