You looking at me, looking at you: Brexit Britain and Europe
On Wednesday 14th June, Global Strategy Forum hosted a panel of distinguished experts to discuss the topic of ‘Brexit: You Looking At Me, Looking At You – The View From Europe’ in the second part of a two-day event co-hosted with the Political Economy of Financial Markets (PEFM) Programme at St Antony’s College, University of Oxford.
The morning conference was followed by a luncheon in the House of Lords hosted by Lord Lothian, at which the Rt Hon Lord Owen CH FRCP presented a paper on his interpretation of the EEA agreement. A short and a long version can be downloaded here (short version) and here (long version), and the paper is also available on Lord Owen’s website: http://www.lorddavidowen.co.uk. Following the lunch, the Rt Hon Lord Howell of Guildford wrote to The Times and his letter can be read here.
The Oxford Conference, ‘You Looking At Me, Looking At You: BREXIT Britain And The World’, took place at St Antony’s College on 16th May 2017 and focused specifically on three perspectives on Brexit: how the UK expects its relationship with Europe to change; how the UK hopes to engage with the rest of the (non-European) world; and how the world might respond to this (unforeseen) European divorce.
