The date for the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union draws ever closer. EU leaders have previously agreed the political declaration that sets out the broad aspirations for the kind of relationship the UK and the EU envisage having after Brexit. But what will this so-called ambitious, broad, deep and flexible partnership actually look like? And how will it, and more immediately UK withdrawal from the EU, impact on the many areas of collaboration that have been built up over 45 years of UK membership of the EU?
Join us at Queen’s University Belfast on Wednesday 27 March from 1pm as academics from across the University share their thoughts on the ever-shifting dynamics of Brexit and its impact on key areas.
Whether your interest is in human rights or free movement, the environment, agriculture or business, this is a great opportunity to hear from, and engage with senior researchers and academics from Queen’s as they discuss what has been called the greatest constitutional challenge the UK has faced in generations and explore “what next?” with Brexit.
Senior academics from the Queen’s on Brexit initiative will be joined by representatives from the Human Rights Consortium, Ulster Bank and the Freight Transport Association to lead the discussion. Insight and analysis from Queen’s will be provided by such academics as:
- Prof David Phinnemore
- Prof Dagmar Schiek
- Prof John Garry
- Prof Colin Harvey
- Dr Viviane Gravey
- Dr Mary Dobbs
- Dr Graham Brownlow
- Dr Drew Mikhael
External representatives taking part in the discussions include:
- Richard Ramsey from Ulster Bank
- Claire McCann from the Human Rights Consortium
- Seamus Leheny from the Freight Transport Association
- John Martin and Emily Hunter from the Northern Ireland Environment Link
This special event will take place from 1pm-5pm on Wednesday 27 March in the Canada Room and Council Chamber at Queen’s University Belfast and is part of the Imagine Belfast Festival of Ideas and Politics 2019. It is free to attend and you can register for the event here.
