About the Talk
The UK government’s preferred form of Brexit is gradually crystalizing, but there are still many unknowns and continuing difficulty in establishing what the UK will really want. It is, nevertheless, becoming increasingly clear that, because curbing intra-EU immigration has become so prominent an objective, any lingering hopes that the UK would remain in the EU single market are fading.

Brexit will pose economic (and political) challenges for the future of the EU. It will, inevitably alter the balance between Member States with differing outlooks on global economic integration and on markets. While some in the EU institutions continue to advocate ‘more Europe’ as the way forward others are much more dubious.

This talk will sketch out some of the main issues and explore what would constitute a successful Brexit and who may win or lose from it.
