UK and EU Intelligence Communities in an Age of Durable Disorder After Brexit

Post uscito qui: Brexit Institute – Blog – Dublin City University

Brexit is a major challenge for the present and future security policy of both the UK and the EU. Indeed, all the different possible scenarios show that Brexit will pose several issues inside the current security environment. The consequences will, however, vary depending on the result of Brexit. As it was clearly stated by Federico Fabbrini in The institutional Consequences of “Hard Brexit” (p. 19): “If the UK were to leave the EU without a deal that maintains the current level of integration in the field of security and justice, criminal justice and law enforcement cooperation would be significantly affected”. It is impossible to know what the result of the current discussion and negotiations within the UK and the EU will be. Yet, we can safely state that the level of uncertainty will increase, especially regarding the still unclear relations between the European and UK intelligence communities.
