Following the EU referendum earlier this year the government have made clear that “Brexit means Brexit”. But what does this look like in practice and how will it affect the UK’s relationship with EU member states? What are the trade-offs between national sovereignty and market access to consider? And beyond economic and trade deals, how else can we work with our European neighbours?
‘THE POLICY FACTOR!’ is a talent show-style policy debate that makes the most of audio-visual tools to engage with politicians, policy experts, commentators and audiences both within and beyond the fringe. Each interactive event will explore a positive policy idea for the next Parliament, in the style of an ‘audition’. Responding to the proposal, a ‘judging panel’ will be comprised of individuals representing a variety of views, for example the party, the press, or the people.
The big idea? To find new talent to challenge ‘politics-as-usual’.
