The Importance of Bilateral Collaboration in International Counter-Terrorism Investigations

Writing for Policy Exchange, Richard Walton — former Head of the Metropolitan Police Counter-Terrorism Command — dissects recent statements that Brexit has left Britain more vulnerable to terrorism. Contrary to claims by his former colleague Sir Hugh Orde and the former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, Walton observes that international bodies such as Interpol and Europol are far less important to “upstream” international CT investigations than bilateral collaboration between nations.

What would WTO mean?

Policy Exchange’s Head of Trade Policy Geoff Raby and Visiting Fellow Andrew Stoler argue that “While a high-quality FTA with the EU is the preferred outcome and in the best interests of both parties, the UK need not fear a world in which trade in goods and services and the regulatory disciplines that apply are those of the modern WTO.” They set out in an article for ConservativeHome how even in sectors with relatively high WTO tariffs, any challenge is likely to be greater for EU exporters to the UK than for UK exporters to the EU
