On Diverging Paths? The future of the EU and the United Kingdom after Brexit


Joint event by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, Jelen and Political Capital

Date: 10:00-11:00am, 21st April, 2021
Location: online

Language: English (with Hungarian interpretation)



The United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union not only lead to a political crisis and to the weakening of the EU’s normative power, but it will also have long-term foreign and security policy implications.

  • What foreign policy priorities and challenges will the EU and the UK face in the post-Brexit era?
  • How will supply chain threats evolve in the future? Is there room for cooperation between the EU and the UK to address these threats?
  • How will bilateral relations evolve between the UK and the EU after Brexit?
  • Where can we expect cooperation and where will we see conflicting interests?

We will discuss these questions with our panellists and guests.
