UK after Brexit · A Global Britain or Splendid Isolation?

Thomas More Institute Meeting

Wednesday, April 11, 2018, 6-7:30 pm • Renaissance Hotel, Brussels

April 11, 2018 • Event •

Theresa May contends that leaving the EU will open up new opportunities for the UK to become a “global Britain”. The current British-Russian crisis is certainly a first test of its new relations on the world stage. But with a more unpredictable American ally, more assertive global players such as China and Russia, keeping up with these giants without the overall automatic backing of the Continent may turn up be a challenge. What kind of relations will the UK be able to build with the EU and the rest of the world? Could the Brexit process end up with an inward looking UK entering a new phase of Splendid isolation?

On the occasion of the publication of its new report “Brexit: How will the global role of the United Kingdom be impacted?”, the Thomas More Institute is pleased to invite you to participate in the discussion with:
