For whom

  • Have you just started your Master of European Union Law or EU Competition Law and Regulation and would you like to see your (future) lecturers in action as researchers?

Grand visions or careful revising? The Brexit vote in the UK has been an important event in EU history. It triggered a new period of reflection and raises fundamental questions of the direction in which we should be going. EU officials and Member State politicians take turns to comment on what the right way forward should be. At this event we will discuss the future directions of the EU and the consequences of Brexit for the EU at 27 in specific areas such as international trade, the internal market, free movement of labour, and the common foreign and security policy.
