Written evidence presented to the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee Inquiry on 'Global Britain: The future of UK sanctions policy'

Research output: Other contribution


I am a Professor of Law, specialising in the law and politics of the external relations of the European Union.[1] I have published widely on EU external relations, with particular focus on questions of institutional coherence arising from the Treaty of Lisbon. More recently I have been looking at future UK-EU dynamics in the field of external relations. I have previously submitted evidence to Parliament relating to Brexit and external relations.[2] As sanctions are an increasingly prominent part of EU external relations, I have also published research on this topic, as part of an evaluation of the ‘values’ contained in the CFSP. I am currently continuing research on the alignment of third countries with CFSP measures. Prior to the referendum, I obtained funding from the UK in a Changing Europe initiative to produce public-facing information on external relations, including producing a series of YouTube videos – one of which was devoted to sanctions.
