Event description

Description

What is the most likely outcome of the negotiations between the UK and the EU? Is “no deal” really a possibility? Professor Simon Hix will analyse the underlying causes of the Brexit vote in the UK, and how these are shaping the position the UK government has been taking in the Brexit negotiations. And, from the other side, he will discuss the economic and political interests of the EU and how they are shaping the EU’s position. Putting these together, he will consider several scenarios, from a “good Brexit” (a comprehensive trade agreement, covering goods as well as services), to a “hard Brexit” (a very minimal agreement), and even a “no deal Brexit”. He will also look at the potential economic and political consequences of these outcomes for the UK and Europe as a whole.

Speaker: Simon Hix, Professor of Political Science, LSE

Discussant: George Pagoulatos, Professor of European Politics and Economy, Athens University of Economics and Business

Chair: Kevin Featherstone, Professor of Contemporary Greek Studies; Head of the European Institute, LSE
