Dates:
  • Mon 28 Jan 2019 15.00 - 18.00
  Add to Calendar 2019-01-28 15:00 2019-01-28 18:00 Europe/Paris Brexit – Which way forward?

This policy dialogue takes place at the Thon Hotel EU, Rue de la loi 75, 1040 Brussels Speakers: Tony Connelly, Europe Editor, RTE Brigid Laffan, Director, Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, European University Institute Jennifer Rankin, Brussels Correspondent, The Guardian Ivan Rogers, Former UK Permanent Representative to the EU Jill Rutter, Programme Director, Institute for Government Sabine Weyand, Deputy Chief Brexit Negotiator, European Commission Fabian Zuleeg, Chief Executive, European Policy Centre The European Policy Centre and the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies are organising this Policy Dialogue which will take stock of the Brexit process and discuss possible ways forward. After the unprecedented parliamentary defeat for the UK government, the direction of Brexit is less clear than ever. Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal seems all but dead, EU diplomats have ruled out reopening negotiations and there does not appear to be a majority in parliament for a second referendum or for a no-Brexit. Does this mean that no deal is inevitable? Is there anything the EU can do at this stage to help Theresa May rescue her deal? Will the EU be able to maintain unity in the coming weeks and months, or will member states start to break rank? How likely is it that Brexit will be delayed or even abandoned and what would be the implications for the EU? This Policy Dialogue will seek to answer these and other questions. Attendance is upon invitation only.
