What is “shiny insulation”?

“Brilliant isolation” (English Splendid isolation) – a term used to denote the general course of British foreign policy of the second half of the XIX century, expressed in the refusal to enter into long international unions. The island position, huge colonial possessions, the world’s strongest navy, and most importantly – industrial and financial superiority over other powers allowed England to maintain freedom of action in the international arena. Using the contradictions between European states, England sought to expand and strengthen its international influence. The Shiny Isolation policy did not prevent England from concluding temporary agreements that contributed to the realization of its expansionist goals.
