Towards “Global Britain”: Challenging the New Narratives of National Decline
Is Britain in decline? Following the EU referendum, you could be forgiven for thinking so. Commentators seem gripped by the idea that the country is heading towards national decline. This is simply not the case. New research from The Henry Jackson Society clearly demonstrates that the UK is well positioned to thrive post-Brexit.
“Towards a ‘Global Britain’: Challenging the new narratives of national decline” takes aim at declinist narratives. The report sets out why the U.K. has strengths across a range of areas that will empower it in the years ahead, including in its economy, military and culture.
The report builds on the findings from ‘An Audit of Geopolitical Capability’, also just released, which shows the U.K. was second only to the United States in geopolitical power.
