Foreign and security policy consequences of Brexit – a view from Central Europe


In the latest in a series of expert events on Brexit, Policy Scotland and the department for Central and European Studies are delighted to welcome Dr. Károly Grúber to the University of Glasgow for a seminar on the possible foreign and security policy consequences of Brexit. Dr Grúber is Head of Department for Common Foreign and Security Policy at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Associate Professor Széchenyi István University.

2016 saw major political events such as Brexit and Trump’s electoral victory which may have fundamental impact on the EU’s developing security environment. The seminar will address some questions about possible future ways in which the EU’s foreign and security policy may develop in terms of the implementation of the EU’s recently adopted Global Strategy. It will also seek to provide an overview of the situation as viewed from the capitals of the Central European EU member states, highlighting challenges and possible opportunities for the region and wider EU common foreign and security policy.

The seminar will take place in Room 234 of the St Andrews Building at 4pm on Tuesday 7th March 2017.
