The Baltic after Brexit

Noting its historically important role in the region, our panel asks whether the UK will be able to sustain its role into the future, and if so in what ways?  The critical part played by the UK in deterring Russian aggression through NATO might come under increasing strain, especially if the eventual form of Brexit leads the EU (including Poland and the Baltic States) to tilt against the UK. In the context of a perceived shift in American politics, at least under former President Trump, away from the article five commitment to her western allies, we explore whether the region might become more dependent on London, so reverting to historical geopolitical patterns, or will London become more dependent on the region?
