This panel discussion will focus on assessing the implications of the Brexit process for the future of Anglo-German relations. 

The UK’s relations with Germany are important in a variety of strategic contexts. But, what are the implications of the Brexit process for the future of Anglo-German relations? How far can shared security interests withstand wider instability, if not conflict? Can the two nations maintain the same levels of foreign policy cooperation?
