UK has much to offer EU on foreign and security policy but needs to spell out how it will work

Open Europe’s Stephen Booth argues that the Government’s paper on foreign policy and defence cooperation is a useful summary and assessment of the status quo. However, if the UK wants to convince the EU27 it is serious about a “deep and special partnership” it should make specific proposals for post-Brexit cooperation in foreign and security policy sooner rather than later.

It is a comprehensive and useful summary of the Government’s assessment of EU cooperation in these fields so far and how this promotes shared UK-EU interests. It also details the UK’s extensive contribution to European security to date.
