Britain and Europe: The political economy of 'Brexit' in trade and finance

Tuesday 14 June 2016, 9.45AM to 5.00pm

This workshop examines the changing nature of Britain’s relationship with the European Union (EU), pre- and post-referendum, by looking at three economic policy areas: 1) trade and investment; 2) finance (financial integration, regulation and currencies); iii) Economic and Monetary Union (including Banking Union  and euro crisis). The sessions of the workshop are organised around these themes.
