Event description

Description

The United Kingdom’s impending departure from the European Union presents major challenges for the UK. Delivering Brexit is probably the largest task ever undertaken by UK government in peacetime. The task will bear heavily on both the Government of the United Kingdom and the devolved governments. This seminar focuses on the challenges presented to all parts of our governmental system through papers on:

  • constitutional issues and developments;
  • public expenditure and public services;
  • the structure and machinery of UK government;
  • some questions of substantive policy, i.e. Borders, Trade and Immigration.

Brexit’s Challenge to UK and devolved government will be the seventh in a series of ESRC-funded seminars that focus particularly on the impacts leaving the EU will have (i) for devolved government and public policy in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and the regions of England and (ii) for Ireland.

The event is aimed at officials from governments, public services leaders, representatives of civil society and academics from a variety of disciplines. It is intended to enhance understanding of the policy choices and decisions that Brexit creates. The event will include ample time for questions and discussion and will be conducted under the Chatham House Rule to encourage frank discussion.
