What are the ramifications of Brexit? What are the considerations from a macroeconomic context? We look to explore this in greater detail, led by a panel of experts
This conference, organised in association with the journal, Local Economy, offers an opportunity to discuss the ramifications of Brexit with informed experts. Loosely based on a special edition of Local Economy, the conference explores the macroeconomic context, voting patterns in the referendum (with updates from our event earlier in the year), Cohesion Policy past and present, the referendum and our democracy, and the future (if any) of student mobility.
Admission is free. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Free copies of the special edition of Local Economy will be available for participants.
