Overview of the Lecture

As the United Kingdom prepares to leave the European Union, it is faced with having to develop new forms of cooperation with its neighbours to fight ever more transnational security threats, as well as new strategies to maintain its leading role as an international security actor. This lecture proposes to explore these important developments by first giving a comprehensive overview of the current internal security relationship between the UK and the EU, followed by the possible consequences of Brexit in this area, the negotiation positions of both parties, and the possible alternatives currently being discussed.

Objectives
– To understand the reasons that led the UK to initiate Art. 50;
– To identify the main consequences relating to police and judicial cooperation, asylum, migration and borders;
– To explore the repercussions that this decision will have beyond the field of security.

Questions for discussion
– What are the consequences of Brexit for the UK and the EU’s security?
– What are the current negotiation positions?
– What obstacles can we foresee in the near future?
– What impact can Brexit and the new arrangements have on future European integration?
– How will Brexit impact Portugal?
