The European Union, alongside NATO, used to be a steadily expanding feature of Transatlantic cooperation for more than half a century. However, “Brexit” and other developments have rocked the Atlantic space in a way that few observers would have anticipated less than two years ago. Today, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is “in the freezer”, while the UK and EU are preparing for the former's exit from the latter. In order to find a way forward, it is time to explore the whole range of politically palatable and legally feasible modes of Transatlantic foreign policy cooperation that can work for the US, the EU, and the UK. In this talk, Joris Larik will argue that it is a gross oversimplification to conceive of transatlantic relations post-Brexit as a “new” US-UK relationship next to the pre-existing US-EU relationship. Instead, “Brexit” entails a re-calibration of some of the many existing and interdependent triangular relationships the United States maintains with the EU and its Member States. Taking trade and security as salient case studies, the presentation will delve into existing and proposed forms of collaboration that go beyond the traditional the paradigm of full EU membership.
Speaker: Dr Joris Larik, Leiden University
