The United Kingdom and Southeast Asia after Brexit
Storey, Ian | April 2019
Within the Indo-Pacific, the UK recognizes Southeast Asia as a “dynamic region where there are opportunities for greater UK engagement across a variety of sectors”. Due to its historical links to the region, and its globalized economy—the fifth largest in the world—the UK already has significant economic, political and security interests in Southeast Asia. It also has considerable soft power attributes in the region through language, education, music, the media and sport (especially football). Post-Brexit, it seeks to enhance those interests by strengthening relations with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), deepening ties with regional states, and expanding its defense activities in the region. This article examines UK aspirations, and some of the challenges to those aspirations, in each of these areas.
