The Aston Centre for Europe and the Foreign Policy Centre are pleased to invite you to their forthcoming policy and outreach seminar on UK-EU internal security cooperation. As the United Kingdom prepares to leave the European Union, it is now faced with having to develop new forms of cooperation with its European neighbours to fight ever more transnational security threats. As a country with a key role in international security, it is also now confronted with a potential loss of influence in European decision-making, and with the need to create innovative strategies to maintain its security leadership. Bearing this background in kind, the seminar proposes to explore what is likely to be one of the most important security shifts in the history of contemporary Britain, by discussing alternatives to the UK's current security opt-ins, the viability of reproducing EU instruments outside the EU framework, and any political and legal challenges likely to emerge during the negotiation of the new security agreement.
