On 5 December, ICDS Research Fellows Riina Kaljurand, Tony Lawrence, Pauli Järvenpää and Tomas Jermalavičius presented their report, “Brexit and Baltic Sea Security” at a seminar at ICDS.
The UK’s decision to leave the EU is likely to have significant and lasting impact. Based on interviews with government officials and researchers in nine states, and a scenario-based planning methodology, the report considers Brexit’s possible effects on military security and defence, and in particular its possible impact on the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) and on NATO.
The event was introduced by Klen Jäärats of the Government Office of Estonia, which commissioned the report. The report is available here.
