Brexit and the UK-US Special Relationship

calendarclock - (BST)

In this webinar, a panel of experts considered the impact of Brexit on the transatlantic relationship.  

Britain prides itself on its special relationship with the United States. Ties of history, language and culture matter; so, in recent decades, has London’s informal role as a go-between for Washington’s relations with Brussels, Berlin, and Paris. The true extent of that role is open to debate; but at the very least, British ministers and diplomats have thought it worthwhile having feet in both the European and transatlantic camps.  

In this webinar, a panel of experts considered where post-Brexit Britain will stand in the mid-2020s when the dust has settled.  

Panellists included:   

  • The Rt. Hon. Sir Malcolm Rifkind KCMG QC, Distinguished Fellow, RUSI and former UK Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs

  • Amanda Sloat, Robert Bosch Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution and former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Southern Europe and Eastern Mediterranean Affairs, U.S. Department of State

The webinar was moderated by Dr Jonathan Eyal, International Director, RUSI
