This Funzing Experience:

What is happening with Article 50? Did Vote Leave really break the law? Could this whole Brexit thing be called off? Join acclaimed Professor of European & EU Law Michael Dougan, for a fact fuelled talk on what exactly is going on with Brexit, and what is likely to happen next.

The UK's decision to leave the European Union is the most significant change in national policy for nearly 50 years. Some believe withdrawal opens up exciting opportunities for economic, social and political change. Others regard withdrawal as the product of political populism that will only damage the UK's interests and global influence.

After over 2 years of political confusion, many of the UK's preparations for withdrawal are due to (must!) crystallise in autumn 2018: not only negotiations with the EU over an orderly withdrawal and a much-needed transitional period; but also the vision for future UK-EU relations on fundamental questions such as trade and security - as well as the UK's own internal constitutional resettlement and major policy changes - to say nothing of the country's future orientation towards the rest of the world.

This talk will explain where we have got to at this key moment in the whole Brexit process and explore some of the key decisions and paths that lie ahead.

Venue: Lock 91

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
