With the possible end of the Anglo-American special relationship and UK-European co-operation, could this mean the end of Bond as we know it

Experts from across Royal Holloway have been analysing what the new political landscape of Brexit and Trump means for Europe, its politics, culture and its most recognisable super-spy, Jame Bond. For the nation’s stalwart of security, recent events could spell bad news…

Klaus Dodds, Professor of Geopolitics wrote for The Conversation about whether ‘these tumultuous times – with the possible end of the Anglo-American special relationship and UK-European co-operation – also mean the end of Bond as we know it?’

Nationalist and xenophobic forces are celebrating

Meanwhile, Dr Andrea Mammone wrote a sobering assessment for CNN in which he expressed worry about the far-right response in Europe to an America made ‘great’ by Trump,

 ‘Indeed, nationalist and xenophobic forces are celebrating. Trump's win represents victory for the far-right's worldview. It shows how right-wing parties can borrow Obama's slogan -- "yes, we can" -- and achieve electoral success with it themselves. They are all hoping that a new era is on the march, with renewed prospects in national elections.’

As the dust settles from this latest political storm, our experts will be analysing what this means for our future.
