Event description

Description

The triggering of Article 50 and the process of Brexit have brought opportunities to redevelop key policy areas. One such area is British agriculture, which has been compliant with the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy. It aimed at ensuring the sector’s growth in compliance with animal welfare, food safety and environmental protection. Nevertheless, the Policy was not free from criticism, with most focusing on the role and effect of subsidies. The Agriculture Bill 2017-19 signifies the beginning of the transition towards a UK Agriculture Policy and the forthcoming withdrawal from the Common Agricultural Policy. This will provide an exceptional opportunity for British policy makers, industry experts, stakeholders and academics to rethink environmental policies, food safety regulations and to reconsider the interests of farmers and consumers. This timely conference will bring together prominent academics, policy makers, media representatives and stakeholders to discuss critical issues impacting immigration work force, environmental protection and food production in post-Brexit Britain.
