Free event: Queen’s Policy Engagement Post-Brexit Clinic on 4 February 2020…

 Join us for what will be the first post-Brexit Clinic here at Queen’s Policy Engagement.

 The UK’s request to extend the Brexit deadline to 31 January 2020 was agreed back in 2019 and Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal recently became law after it received royal assent from the Queen, having gone through all the required stages in Parliament.

As things stand, the 1st February 2020 will mark the first day of the transition period for the UK and the beginning of a very tight timeframe for negotiating the UK’s future relationship with the EU before the 31 December 2020 deadline.

Join us on 4 February 2020 at 12.30pm in the Canada Room at Queen’s for the latest updates from our resident Brexit experts, led by Professor David Phinnemore. How will the UK mark its exit from the EU on the 31st January? Has Boris simply kicked a cliff-edge Brexit down the line? Will the new withdrawal agreement create a border in the Irish Sea?

So many questions and so little time! To register, simply click here.

We look forward to seeing you then.
