On the 23rd June 2016, the UK voted to leave the European Union. Three years after the vote, Britain has still not left. The country has become mired in the Brexit debate, exacerbated by an ever-increasing atmosphere of political polarisation and fragmentation. The populist right aim to use Brexit to shape Britain along ideological anti-European lines. It is vital then for policymakers to encourage bilateral exchange to make sure Britain, Germany and the EU remain closely aligned after Brexit.  

The FES London and the FES in Germany have organised bilateral events and panel discussions to explore the implications of Brexit on British-German relations. As a social democratic think tank, the FES London is especially concerned about the potential consequences of Brexit for worker’s rights, environmental standards, gender and equality and has organised events and released publications on these issues.
