This research intends to assess the longer term impact of various trade agreements on the living standards of individuals in different regions. This will be assessed through examining the likely impact on wages, the wage distribution, and prices for goods and services in local areas.

Related to this is an investigation of the likely impact on firms, such as their productivity levels and an assessment as to whether factors such as firm size are important in determining local effects. It will also assess the shorter term impacts resulting from changes occurring immediately after the Brexit vote.
