Let's Stick Together: Brexit Would Be a Blow to Britain's Allies

The sky will not fall, in foreign-policy terms, if the United Kingdom votes to leave the European Union. NATO is not going anywhere, nor is the UK's seat on the UN Security Council. But if Brexit does happen, Britain will start to find itself a little lonelier, and the West a little weaker.

Voting Remain Is the Sure-Fire Way to Destroy Nato

It is clear we cannot leave Britain's defence and security in the hands of the EU. A vote to Remain will validate this lie it is the EU which has maintained peace in Europe. Whether or not Trump is elected President in America will not matter in the end. America will see the EU as the future of Europe, and NATO as expensive relic of a bygone age.

The EU: More Important Than Nato

I am Italian by birth, but I have lived in the UK for nigh on 23 years. I have been working, paying taxes and doing voluntary work in this country for 16 of those. My wife is British, and both of my children were born here. The UK is the place that I and my family call home.

Government Policy Needs a More Realistic Approach to Russia

In search of his country's Tsarist roots, Vladimir Putin has steered Russia on a course towards unforgiving political authoritarianism, buttressed by state capitalism and legitimised by orthodox religiosity and patriotism.

Has the EU Really Saved Europe From War?

The EU has already been buffeted by the Eurozone and migration crises; one more major shock to the system could well mark the beginning of the end. In the words of David Cameron: 'Can we be so sure that peace and stability on our continent are assured beyond any shadow of doubt?' Like the prime minister, I would never be so rash as to make that assumption.

Refugees: There Is a Better Way

Robin Lustig

Refugees want above all to be safe, and to have some hope that they can build a new and better life for themselves and their children, either in a new home or back in their old home once the conflict is over. Europe's voters want their governments to show that they are on top of the crisis, not paralysed into inaction.

The EU's Status as Europe's Peacekeeper Is an Insulting Myth

Oliver Norgrove | Posted 15.02.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Oliver Norgrove

Achieving ever-closer-union, as it foreshadowed, has been the driving force behind the gradual (and often forceful) assimilation of law, currency and culture across the European continent. To many, it seemed a wonderful way of enhancing international cooperation, and promoting both peace and unity.

Why I (Somewhat Reluctantly) Like Vladimir Putin

Oliver Norgrove | Posted 05.02.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Oliver Norgrove

Tyrannical and thoroughly disagreeable though he is, Mr Putin stands for nationalistic pride, a crucial buffer against the perils of American foreign policy and a determination to defend a revived Russia on the world stage, and her citizens abroad. Three things I respect, and three things a shrinking world desperately needs.

It Is Clear That, From a National Security Point of View, Britain Is Stronger in Europe

Lord Wallace | Posted 10.12.2015 | UK Politics
Lord Wallace

Already the UK is kept more secure and has a stronger leadership role on the global stage because of our military co-operation with Europe. If we are to continue to reap these benefits though, we cannot countenance turning our back on the EU, pulling up the drawbridge and going it alone. We have to engage more widely with political elites in our partner countries to make sure that we build their support.

Strengthening Britain's Voice in the World

Is the UK really abdicating from its role as an influential power in the world, as many of our friends and allies fear? And does a diminution in our global role make sense? These were the questions a group of foreign and security policy experts set out to answer over the summer.

All told, if the new Labour leader can broaden the appeal of his views on Britain's role in the world among his parliamentary colleagues and the public, he could have an unexpected influence on UK foreign policy.

Just five years ago we had a Strategic Defence and Security Review which proposed armed forces configured for an age of austerity when most of the threats we faced were, at the very least, containable. We were pulling out of an expensive war in Afghanistan... Just five years later we live in a very different world.
