Seminar Series: Institute for the Study of European Laws (ISEL)
Speaker: Dr Joris Larik, Leiden University
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”, the American President has called NATO “obsolete” and the EU a “foe”, while Brexit negotiations appear stuck in irreconcilable differences. Taking trade and security as salient case studies, the presentation will delve into the rupture in transatlantic treaty relations caused by Brexit and the ways in which the future UK-EU relationship will continue to affect Britain’s post-EU “special relationship” with the US.
