BREXIT: IMPACT ON INDIA-EUROPEAN UNION STRATEGIC RELATIONSHIP

Najish* Afroz Ahmad**

 
ABSTRACT
The 14th Summit between the European Union and India was held on 6 october 2017 in New Delhi, marking 55 years of diplomatic relationship. A joint statement on combatting terrorism, on clean energy and climate change's and smart and sustainable urbanisation were adopted. India and the European Union (EU) have been close allies and the bilateral relationships between the two were upgraded to a strategic level in 2004. An unprecedented change came in June 2016 when nearly 52 percent people decided to “BREXIT” and leave EU reversing the decision taken in 1975 to join the common market. In such scenario, the exit of UK significantly affected the relationship between India and EU and prompted India to reconsider its ties with EU. The strengthening of India- EU strategic relationship is significant not only for both powers but expected to be good for the entire world. In this context, present paper attempts at analyzing the dimensions and levels of cooperation between India and EU and to further explore the impact of UK “BREXIT” on the India- EU strategic relationship.
