Heading for the exit: Defence and the UK’s departure from the European Union

Thursday 28 June – 15:00 (UK) / 10:00 (ET)

The United Kingdom is scheduled to leave the European Union in March 2019, marking the beginning of a new and currently uncertain period.

Two years on from the monumental decision to leave the EU, the security and economic environment of the UK has shifted. Within this new context, Jane’s will explore the defence market implications of the UK’s decision to leave the EU, covering cross-border military development and procurement co-operation; procurement practices; defence industrial issues; and defence investment. The budgetary outlook for the UK and remaining EU defence markets will also be explored.

Jane’s experts will cover:

  • The outlook for intra-EU defence industrial co-operation
  • The prognosis for ongoing defence industrial co-operation between the UK and the EU
  • The implications for defence industrial consolidation and investment
  • The implications for procurement practices within the EU and UK
  • The defence spending landscape and the outlook for EU and UK military budgets into the next decade
Speakers include:
  • Guy Anderson – Associated Director, Jane’s Defence Industry,
    Markets and Budgets.
  • Fenella McGerty – Principal Analyst, Jane’s Defence Budgets

Maximising capabilities:
Multi-use aircraft in Latin America

Wednesday 11 July – 15:00 (UK) / 10:00 (ET)

Jane’s classes dual-use aircraft as those that have been acquired for both military and commercial purposes, and that are flexibly operated in either domain.

  • Regional and country-specific defence budgets, with a focus on the largest user countries comprising Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru;
  • Regional threats and requirements through Military Capabilities;

The Cold Front: How the strategic competition between NATO and Russia is shaping Europe

Wednesday 19 July – 15:00 (UK) / 10:00 (ET)

Russia’s annexation of the Crimea in 2014, support of separatists in Eastern Ukraine, military intervention in Syria, and interference in the 2016 US elections have alarmed the NATO alliance. In response, NATO and other European countries have implemented a range of sanctions, enhanced their military presence in Eastern Europe, and are reorienting their military forces back towards conventional warfighting against a peer adversary.

This game of power politics has raised the spectre of a second Cold War – fears which some say are overblown and others say have already become a reality. This briefing will examine in more depth the tensions along the old fault line of Europe, the existing and emerging military capabilities of NATO countries; and the strategic context. Specifically, Jane’s experts will cover:

  • The status of NATO’s Enhanced Forward Presence mission and the US military’s reinforcement of capabilities across the Old Continent
  • Military capabilities of key NATO countries and the rebuilding of skills and materiel for high-intensity conventional war
  • Military capabilities of the Baltic Republics and NATO’s strategy in the frontline states
  • The remilitarization of Sweden’s Gotland and the island’s importance in the event of conflict
  • Polish Armed Forces Review
  • NATO’s involvement in the Ukraine
  • Russia’s military build-up in Western Military District
Speakers include:
  • Dr. Dylan Lee Lehrke – Senior Analyst for North America and Western Europe, Jane’s Military Capabilities
  • Konrad Muzyka – Senior Analyst for Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States, Jane’s Military Capabilities
