UK-EU Relations

For the launch event of the report ‘UK regulation after Brexit revisited’ by ‘Negotiating the Future’, co-convened by ‘UK in a Changing Europe’, ‘Negotiating the Future’, Brexit and Environment, and the Centre for Competition Policy are hosting an event to ask a number of questions.

They ask: What has changed in UK regulation? What are the implications for the UK’s devolved settlement? What is at issue with ‘retained EU law’? What are the prospects for UK regulatory divergence? The report includes coverage of agriculture, data and digital, environmental regulation, food, manufacturing, transport, and workers’ rights.
