As Gordon Brown prepared to take the international stage, Policy Network in association with the German Marshall Fund held a joint event on the challenges facing UK foreign policy in a post-Blair era.

Patrick Diamond, the Director of Policy Network and a Transatlantic Fellow with GMF, shared the findings of his book, Britain After Blair, at the event, which took place in Brussels on Tuesday 26 June.

The book argues that despite its ‘special relationship’ with America, the UK continues to lack real strategic and diplomatic influence in Washington, but has still not reconciled itself to full engagement in the European Union. How this choice is resolved in the post-Blair era will have major implications for the future of the Transatlantic relationship, and the direction of the EU.
