Event description

Description

Since the referendum, the prospect of Brexit has been preoccupying the minds of policy makers, civil servants, professionals and academics across almost all sectors of society and the economy. Thus far, the high-level decisions have been given most air-time – the role of parliament in setting the agenda, the future trade relationship between the UK and EU, immigration and the status of EU citizens. This is likely to change once the negotiations begin proper. Brexit will require rethinking a vast range of policy areas in significant detail. Less noticed in public debate, but key in the forthcoming negotiations are the laws and policies concerning the fundamental bridge and border between the UK and Europe: the oceans. From international agreements defining the law of the sea to marine governance, from fisheries and offshore energy to environmental standards, how will the UK's withdrawal from the EU define the UK’s future as a maritime nation?
