Event description

Description

A public lecture with Professor Kenneth Armstrong of the University of Cambridge.

After a period of uncertainty, the UK Government has conceded that it will seek a transitional framework as a bridge between the UK's membership of the European Union and the 'deep and special partnership' with the EU that it will seek to secure once the UK has left the EU. 'Transitional' throws up a number of important political questions about its duration and whether the UK will be bound be new EU rules and by EU institutions. Legally, such a framework may be complex to put in place and difficult to implement. This lecture will explore what transition might look like and whether such a framework is really necessary.
