Dr Thomas Mills has co-authored a report for the British Foreign Policy Group think tank on British foreign policy towards Latin America. The report, entitled ‘Revitalising UK-Latin America Engagement Post-Brexit’ assesses the economic, political and security relations between Britain and Latin America in the wake of the announcement in 2010 by the then Foreign Secretary William Hague of a desire to rejuvenate UK-Latin America ties – the so-called ‘Canning Agenda’. Paying particular attention to the likely effects of Brexit on Britain’s relations with the countries of Latin America, the report also presents a series of policy recommendations for the UK government. The report includes a forward by Joanna Crellin, Her Majesty’s Trade Commissioner for Latin America and the Caribbean. Crellin writes: “This British Foreign Policy Group report by Edward Elliott and Dr Thomas Mills is very

welcome and provides a timely assessment of the Canning Agenda at a pivotal time for the UK’s foreign policy. The in-depth analysis of the successes and limitations of the Canning Agenda gives us a clear view of where these vital relationships stand today, whilst also providing useful policy recommendations for the UK to build on them even more”. The report for the British Foreign Policy Group builds on Dr Mills’ article on the Canning Agenda recently published in International Affairs.
