Boris Johnson became the new leader of the U.K. on a mandate to "get Brexit done" – this phrase having served as his mantra over the election campaign. Johnson had called for an early poll on the basis that the British Parliament was ill-equipped to make decisions on Brexit, serving his Conservative Party a large majority in the House of Commons, with 364 seats out of the 650 on offer in the party's biggest majority since Margaret Thatcher's day. The result will take the U.K. out of the EU in some fashion and is set to cause huge transformations across Britain and the continent alike.
The year 2020 has the potential to bring about a full range of challenges in European politics. So, where do the coming alterations place the Western Balkans? Many analysts have noted Brexit's possible impacts on the Western Balkans, but only a few have revived Johnson's strategy toward the region. Brexit means that Johnson's most important foreign policy strategies will be deeply linked to the U.K.'s internal issues and, until the next election, Johnson will be the most significant figure in foreign policy affecting the Western Balkans.
