Event description

Description

We know that the UK will be leaving the European Union but many questions remain. What will be UK’s future relationship with the EU? What effect will it have on the economy? What effect will it have on the constituent nations of the UK and on the Republic of Ireland?

“Negotiating Brexit” will be the first of a series of seminars funded by an ESRC Impact acceleration grant that addresses these questions. The seminars are funded by an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Impact Acceleration Award and will focus on the impact leaving the EU will have on devolved government and public policy in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and also the Republic of Ireland. The Negotiating Brexit seminar will cover (i) the negotiation process in general, including the input of the devolved governments, and (ii) the particular concerns of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland re. Brexit.

The event is aimed at academics from a variety of disciplines, officials from devolved governments, people from the business community and representatives of civil society and is intended to enhancing understanding of the policy choices and decisions that Brexit faces us with. The event will include ample time for questions and discussion and will be conducted under Chatham House Rules to encourage frank discussion.

Attendance is FREE as a result of the ESRC funding and lunch will be available beforehand from 1245.
