The UK’s foreign and security strategy in the post-Brexit era and the implications for the transatlantic relationship
On Thursday May 6, the Netherlands Atlantic Association organized a program themed
Great Expectations? The UK’s foreign and security strategy in the post-Brexit era and the implications for the transatlantic relationship
Last month the British government published a policy paper, entitled ‘Global Britain in a Competitive Age’. This integrated review lays out a vision for the UK’s role in the world over the next decade. Since the UK will remain an indispensable partner in defense and security affairs for the Netherlands and the European Union, now is a good time to assess the strategic analysis and the vision of the policy paper. Three speakers discussed the paper’s content from different angles. Jamie Shea outlined the paper’s background and discussed the post-Brexit state of affairs. Ian Lesser looked at the strategy’s implications for the transatlantic relationship. Rem Korteweg commented on what it all means for the EU and the Netherlands. The program was moderated by Paul Brill.
