The UK in a Changing Europe promotes rigorous, high-quality and independent research into the complex and ever changing relationship between the UK and the European Union (EU).

It provides an authoritative, non-partisan and impartial reference point for those looking for information, insights and analysis about UK-EU relations that stands aside from the politics surrounding the debate.

The Initiative’s work is tailored to be easily accessible to policy makers, businesses, journalists, civil society organisations, educational institutions and the general public who are interested in the UK’s relationship with the EU.

It is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), and based at King’s College London.Among the many important and complicated issues that UK and EU officials must resolve during the course of Brexit negotiations is the future of UK-EU police and security cooperation.

Continued cooperation between the UK and the EU in these areas is essential. The UK and EU member states face common threats from organised crime and jihadist-inspired terrorism. But despite a shared interest in maintaining a close relationship in these policy areas, negotiations on the future of UK-EU police and security cooperation will face a number of political, legal, and practical hurdles.
