Free event – Rejections, Defections and Elections…

Over the past three years, Brexit has been the gift that just keeps on giving. There are those who want to rip it open and get stuck right into it, while there are others who are halfway to the shops with the receipt in hand.

Since our last Brexit Clinic at Queen’s in March, Theresa May’s Brexit deal was once again rejected by Parliament, an extension until 31 October was agreed and May’s subsequent negotiations with Labour on a way forward for her deal have collapsed. And not forgetting of course that Mrs May has eventually called time on her premiership.

We have seen the setting up of Change UK and the Brexit Party, European Parliament elections have taken place and Nigel Farage’s Brexit party has raced up the poles. So what does all this mean for what happens over the coming months, particularly in light of the current race to No. 10?

Join our panel from Queen’s as they talk through the latest developments in the Brexit process which, given what has been happening to date, will no doubt be changing by the day!

With Professors David Phinnemore, Dagmar Schiek and Dr Mary Dobbs.

This event will take place from 12.30pm-2pm on Wednesday 19 June in the Peter Froggatt Centre at Queen’s University Belfast in Room 02/026. It is free to attend and you can register for the event here. Lunch will be provided.
