This report proposes options for UK-European civil society organisation collaboration in the lead up to and following the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union.

The analysis informing these options is based on 15 telephone interviews with a cross-section of representatives from European development non-governmental organisations, national platforms, NGO families with a presence in Brussels, Bond members, and experts on EU development and humanitarian issues.

The report examines the current political and economic context across Europe, and the operating environments for European NGOs/CSOs. It analyses the opportunities and challenges for EU development and humanitarian civil society organisations created by Brexit. It then proposes options for collaboration to maximise impact in driving an ambitious international development and humanitarian agenda within the prevailing conditions.
