Would "Brexit" spell the end of European defence?

 Britain and France are nuclear powers, partners in NATO and the EU, permanent members of the UN Security Council, and are Europe’s leading security actors. Together they represent the EU’s best (only?) hope of building a Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) and, finally, sharing with the US the burden of collective Western defence in an increasingly unstable and dangerous world. Britain and France have taken major steps to pool their defence capabilities. What do they need to do to be more effective global security actors? A panel of defence and foreign policy experts will debate the options.

LSE European Institute panel discussion, with Claire Chick, Bastian Giegerich and Karen Smith.
