Academics questioned on the proposed UK-EU security treaty

20 March 2018

The EU Home Affairs Sub-Committee takes evidence from academics on the practical and legal challenges for negotiating a security treaty with the EU, as well as what such a treaty might cover.


Wednesday 21 March 2018, Committee Room 3, Palace of Westminster

At 10.30am

  • Dr Helena Farrand-Carrapico, Senior Lecturer in Politics and International Relations, Aston University
  • Professor Tim J Wilson, FCSFS, Professor of Criminal Justice Policy, Northumbria University Centre for Evidence and Criminal Justice Studies
  • Professor Anthony Glees MA M Phil D Phil (Oxon), Director, Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies (BUCSIS), The University of Buckingham

Possible questions

  • In an ideal world, what is your vision of the "closest possible cooperation" on security cooperation between the UK and the EU27 post-Brexit?
  • Do you think that it will be possible for the UK to continue to have access in some way to the EU's structures for police and judicial cooperation, for example Europol?
  • Are there any existing models, either within the EU or elsewhere, for a future UK-EU security relationship?
  • Will the UK lose the influence that it wields in security cooperation, once it is no longer part of the EU?
