Chapter 14: Strong together? The impact of Brexit on security and defence cooperation

Brexit / BOOK
Juha Jokela

Date: 17/06/2020

Juha Jokela analyses the consequences of Brexit in terms of European and Western security and defence. What with the departure of one of the world’s major security actors from the Union, combined with President Trump’s ambiguous commitments to NATO, the EU is showing a determined effort to build a stronger European pillar for security and defence in the long run. Jokela argues that increasing EU-NATO cooperation as well as different forms of bi- and multilateral defence cooperation could create a platform for a deeper EU-UK relationship in security and defence.

This chapter is part of the publication Towards an ambitious, broad, deep and flexible EU-UK partnership?, which examines the political, economic, social and institutional implications of the UK’s departure from the EU in different policy fields, as well as its impact on UK politics and EU integration. The contributions in this book, all by leading experts on Brexit, draw from discussions held in the Brexit Think Tank Group, which was set up by the EPC in the aftermath of the 2016 referendum. Through this format, the EPC facilitated a continuing exchange between the European Commission’s Task Force for Relations with the United Kingdom and the policy community.
