Can the EU have a foreign and security policy without Britain? A grim and insular picture of the future
18 January 2013
Rosa Balfour (Senior Adviser to EPC on Europe in the World)

Even if Britain were to leave the European Union, it would want to cooperate with the EU on select issues (of its choice, of course).
