U.K. and EU after
BREXIT Transition Ends
Monday, December 14, 2020 | 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST
On January 31, 2020, the United Kingdom left the European Union and entered into a transition period, during which the U.K. remains in the EU customs union and single market. This implementation phase, which has allowed for crucial negotiations on the future of the U.K.-EU relationship, is due to end December 31. However, until now, there is no sign that U.K. and EU will be able to reach a deal soon to establish a new relationship between the country and the union. What does the future hold for the U.K. and the EU on issues such as the freedom of movement or trade? Tune in on Monday, December 14, 2020, from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM to listen to our distinguished guest speakers, Dr. Ted R. Bromund, Senior Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation’s Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom and Dr. Dalibor Rohac, Resident Scholar at the American Institute.
