War & Peace: How a Bad Brexit May Sour European Security Cooperation

As the end of the transitional period for Britain’s exit from the EU nears, fundamental questions remain unanswered about how the divorce will affect economic livelihoods, foreign policy and security. In this first episode of a new season of War & Peace, Lord Mark Malloch-Brown joins Olga Oliker and Hugh Pope to discuss how costly the most likely outcome – a limited deal or none at all – will be for trade, NATO and collective defence.

S2E1: How a Bad Brexit May Sour European Security Cooperation

As the end of the transitional period and negotiations for Britain to leave the EU draws near, a ‘no-deal’ or a very limited deal is increasingly likely. Even if a deal is reached, it will be far from a comprehensive framework on how to integrate the two trading systems and contentious issues are likely going to be kicked into next year. Future negotiations could spill over into important areas such as defence and security.

Lord Mark Malloch-Brown, co-Chair of Crisis Group's Board, joins Olga and Hugh for the first episode of a new season to discuss what both a ‘no-deal’ and a limited deal would mean for the future relationship between the UK and the EU, as well as their respective relationships with other actors such as the U.S., NATO and Russia. They also discuss Malloch-Brown’s work as chair for the Best for Britain campaign to keep Britain in Europe, what Brexit tells us about the state of global politics and what must change to better address the concerns of today.
