Which Brexit After the UK Elections?





On 14 September 2017 the DCU Brexit Research & Policy Institute will host its inaugural event on “Which Brexit After the UK Elections?”.

The workshop will examine the implications of the recent UK parliamentary elections on Brexit’s prospects and assess the advancement of the negotiations between the EU and the UK during the Summer. The event will feature the participation of leading academics — including Kenneth Armstrong (Professor of EU Law at the University of Cambridge), Iain Begg (Professor of Political Economy at the London School of Economics) and Emily Jones (Professor of Government at the University of Oxford) — as well of leading policy-makers — including Thomas Beukers (Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands), Ana Gouveia (Ministry of Economic Affairs of Portugal), Rory Montgomery (Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ireland) and Kristien Michoel (Legal Service of the Council of the EU).

The event will be opened by a keynote speech by Helen McEntee, Minister of State for European Affairs of Ireland, who is also an alumna of DCU. This opening speech will be followed by a keynote speech by Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top, member of the U.K. House of Lords’ Select Committee on the EU. The event will be closed by a keynote speech by Sandro Gozi, Minister of State for European Affairs of Italy.
