Leaving the European Union would be the biggest disruption in Britain’s international relations since the end of its empire. However the Brexit negotiations concluded, the United Kingdom's position in the world would be fundamentally changed, yet informed public discussion of the choices that lie ahead had hardly begun.

Simon Fraser, Permanent Under-Secretary, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (2010-15) examined the implications of Brexit for Britain’s foreign policy priorities, its external relationships and its place in the international system, making proposals for how this debate should best be taken forward by the UK government and others.
