Abstract

The UK is a world leader on foreign policy – but it is not at all clear how it can maintain that influence outside the EU, says Karen E Smith. States like Iceland and Switzerland tend to defer to the EU because they lack sufficient heft on their own. The EU itself will suffer from Brexit. But, paradoxically, Donald Trump’s election may stiffen its resolve to act on climate change and the nuclear deal with Iran. Will Britain join those efforts, or will we be left on the sidelines?
