Amid the controversy of the Brexit negotiations both sides agree that the security relationship between the EU and the UK will remain an important building bloc of European stability. But what form might this new relationship take after Brexit, and can it be as smooth and fruitful as is hoped if Britain turns its back on the EU? Would Brexit weaken Europe’s defence structures or would it accelerate efforts by the other EU member states to integrate their defence capacities?  Our expert panel will consider these and other questions related to the future defence structures in Europe.
