Divorces are rarely pleasant processes. The UK Brexit is no exception and the coming months will be crucial to negotiate the terms of the separation, after 40 years of thorny relationship. Media reports that the UK is planning to restrict seriously the freedom of movement for EU citizens. So far, the EU Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, has not been impressed by the UK's Department for Exiting the EU position paper.
Former EU top official Jonathan Faull, who ended his career as Director General of the Task Force on the British referendum on membership of the EU, will reflect upon the different stakes in the negotiations for the UK, EU institutions and EU member states at the occasion of the Centre for European Research 2017 Inaugural lecture on 'Negotiating the BREXIT'.
The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception to which all are welcome.
The CER Inaugural Lecture 2017
The CER Inaugural Lecture 2017 will take place at Queen Mary University of London on Monday, 30 October at 6.30pm. Professor Helen Drake from Loughborough University, leading an ESRC project on 28+ perspectives on BREXIT and Professor Tim Bale, expert on party politics in Britain and Europe, from Queen Mary University of London will act as discussants before leaving the floor to the audience for a Q&A session
