Invitation Only Research Event

When the UK voted to leave the European Union, many experts believed that agreeing a future defence and security relationship would be comparatively straightforward. But like many aspects of the negotiations, defence has become increasingly politicized. From the argument over Galileo to disagreements regarding third country participation in the EU’s newest defence initiatives, the scope and shape of the UK’s defence relationship with the EU remains uncertain.
In this session, speakers will examine the feasibility and desirability on both sides for continued UK engagement in EU defence policy in particular exploring the UK’s potential participation in the Coordinated Annual Review on Defence (CARD), European Defence Fund (EDF) and Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO).
This event is organized in partnership with the Istituto Affari Internazionali with the additional support of Leonardo S.p.A.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
