The second phase of negotiations that the EU and the UK will shortly enter will determine the future shape of their relationship. The consequences will be far-reaching not only for the EU and the UK – their governments, citizens, and businesses – but also for their trading partners. This one-day conference brings together expert commentators, practitioners, and researchers from ‘The UK in a Changing Europe’ to address the following questions:
- How are the two sides approaching the negotiations, and what are the possible outcomes?
- What do EU member states and the UK want from the negotiations?
- What are the likely consequences for UK trade and the UK economy?
- How will UK citizens in the EU and EU citizens in the UK be affected?
- What is at stake for UK regulation of environment policy and financial services?
