Securing UK borders: An examination of the implications of leaving the EU for UK border management

Recent tragic events in Manchester and London have, among other things, underscored the importance to national security of getting Brexit right.

From Europol membership to the Schengen Information System, the UK is at risk of losing access to vital collaborative tools in a wide range of areas.

This report, which was commissioned by London First’s Security & Resilience Network, focuses on the implications of leaving the EU for the management of the UK’s borders. For effective management, the desire to have secure borders must be balanced against making it as easy as possible for international business to thrive and legitimate movement to occur. Finite resources can then be targeted effectively. The report considers how this can be achieved in a post-Brexit UK.

It follows an earlier report by the Security & Resilience Network that examined the Security and Resilience Implications of Brexit.

The authors of the report are:

  • Alison Wakefield PhD, Senior Lecturer in Security Risk Management, University of
    Portsmouth
  • Claire Bradley, European Law Monitor CIC
  • Joe Connell, Director, Praemunitus Ltd Intelligence & Risk Consultants and Chairman,
    Association of Security Consultants
  • John Vine CBE QPM, former Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration
  • Robert Hall, Director, Security & Resilience Network, London First.
