The Future of the Special Relationship Post-Brexit

~ The Sixth Annual Jesse Helms Lecture ~


The Jesse Helms Lecture Series highlights foreign policies that Senator Helms championed throughout his years in office. Of particular concern to Senator Helms was maintaining and strengthening the close relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom.

On June 23, 2016, the British people voted to leave the European Union (EU), striking a blow for sovereignty, self-determination and freedom in Europe. According to the timetable laid out by Prime Minister Theresa May, Britain is expected to leave the EU by spring 2019, opening a world of new opportunities, including the ability to negotiate its own trade deals with nations across the globe.

What will Brexit mean for the United States and the future of the Anglo-American Special Relationship and the transatlantic alliance? Join us as leading Brexit campaigner Daniel Hannan delivers the Sixth Annual Jesse Helms Lecture.
