About the Event

Much energy has been devoted to debating what impact Britain’s departure from the European Union will have for trade and the economy but there has been far less scrutiny of what this will mean for national security. The impact of Brexit on UK-EU cooperation on intelligence, border security, cyber security, and serious crime remains unclear. Yet, with the challenges of adapting to the post-Brexit reality, leaving the European Union may see Britain chart a new course in our national security strategy. Looking towards an increasingly global approach for Britain’s security policy, alignments such as NATO, Five Eyes, and key bilateral relationships may become more significant. This event brings together some of the UK’s leading experts and decision makers in this space.
