This report analyses the potential repercussions of Brexit on the future direction of UK and EU development and humanitarian policy from the viewpoint of Civil Society Organisations.

The report concludes that leaving the EU has the potential to be transformational for the UK. Adapting to life outside the EU while proving the UK’s relevance on the world stage post-Brexit may lead to a reassessment of priorities in UK foreign, development and humanitarian policies.

The departure of a member state is equally unprecedented for the EU. It is expected to alter existing dynamics among the member states and may potentially diminish the "soft power" of the EU as well as of the UK.
