The Consequences of Brexit for European Defence and Security

Occasional Papers, 11 April 2017
International Security Studies
This paper examines the contribution the UK currently makes to EU security in justice and home affairs, as well as through the Common Security and Defence Policy. It examines what the EU – and the UK – might lose if Brexit negotiations result in Britain withdrawing from participation in EU security structures.

This paper is being revised in light of recent events.
