At the turn of the summer of 2018, we are in turbulent Brexit waters. The only clear fact is that the United Kingdom (UK) intends to exit the EU on 29 March 2019 —two years after the British government triggered Article 50 of the TEU. Elvire Fabry and Nicole Koenig discuss potential scenarios for post-Brexit EU-UK trade relations and defence cooperation. This paper is a cooperation between the Jacques Delors Institutes in Paris and Berlin as a contribution to the 2018 Franco-German Rencontres d’Evian.
Dr. Elvire Fabry is Senior Research Fellow at the Jacques Delors Institute, formally she was the director of the Fondation pour l’Innovation Politique.
