European Security after the Brexit Vote: Challenges and Continuities


On the 23rd June, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union (EU). Britain’s vote to leave the EU added a new challenge to a long list of security concerns in Europe, from terrorism to a humanitarian crisis that has the Syrian civil war as its epicentre. Amidst all this, NATO has reinforced its operations in the Eastern flank and the EU adopted a new Global Strategy. This is the background for the conversation between Amelia Hadfield, Director of the Centre for European Studies at Canterbury Christ Church University and Álvaro de Vasconcelos, former director of the European Union Institute for Security Studies that will take place on the 19th January 2017 at 5.45pm (reception at 5.15pm) in the Michael Berry Lecture Theatre at Canterbury Christ Church University.

This event, sponsored by the British International Studies Association (BISA), is organised within the context of the first BISA European Security Working Group workshop that will be taking place in Canterbury Christ Church University during the same period.
