Our regular Brexit events have returned for 2021! Due to Covid-19, all of our events will take place online, but we will still bring together a wide range of speakers and give audience members the opportunity to get involved.

In our next online event, a panel of experts will discuss the future of Northern Ireland in the new post-Brexit landscape.

The recent imbroglio in which the EU invoked Article 16 of the Protocol16 in its dispute with Astra-Zeneca over the export Covid-19 vaccines display the fragility of the post-Brexit arrangements that will be reviewed in 2024. In this environment, the asymmetrical nature of NI-GB and NI-EU transactions creates perverse outcomes and unintended consequences for the different sectors of the NI economy.

The event will analyse the economic implications for Northern Ireland arising out of the UK-EU withdrawal agreement Protocol, as well as the potential in its strategic positioning in regard to Great Britain, the Republic of Ireland and the rest of the European Union.

Join us on Thursday 25 February, 9.00am-10.30am, for an insightful and interesting discussion. The event will take place on Zoom and will be hosted by Professor Alex de Ruyter, Director at the Centre for Brexit Studies, followed by Q&A from the audience. The online event is FREE to virtually attend, but registration is required.
