“Peace, Security and Defence Cooperation in Post-Brexit Europe. Risks and Opportunities”, Cornelia-Adriana Baciu and John Doyle, (Eds.) Springer (ISBN 978-3-030-12417-5).

The book highlights the challenges and prospects of European security cooperation and counterfactually assesses the impact of Brexit on strategic aspects of security, peace, defence and foreign policy for both the European Union and the UK. It applies theoretical and methodological approaches from international relations and security studies to analyse the causal mechanisms of security cooperation, and covers topics including the Northern Ireland peace process, cybersecurity and the role of French-German military cooperation. This book is significant because it contributes to a better understanding and management of anticipated challenges and sources of instability in European and international security, associated with the Brexit process. The book entails contributions from internationally known researchers from London School of Economics, Hertie School of Governance in Berlin, European University Institute in Florence and the Institute for European Studies in Brussels, inter alia.
