Additional Information

The United Kingdom's vote to leave the European Union this past Summer promises to fundamentally alter the political and economic future of the UK and the rest of the EU. There are no clear plans in place to deal with this referendum outcome, and now there is an extended period of time for the UK to negotiate the terms of the exit and invoke Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union.

This has led to a chaotic and uncertain environment for trade negotiations between the US and the EU, as well as with other EU trading partners. Furthermore the very future of the EU may be in jeopardy as other member states consider withdrawing, because of the influx of migrants from conflict areas and because of perceived autocratic governance of the EU management in Brussels.

Christophe Crombez will present the history and status of this unexpected exit and the prospects for the future of the UK, the EU and international trade negotiations.
