The Economic Impacts of Brexit on the UK, its Regions, its Cities and its Sectors: Devolved Administrations Participatory Workshop

Victoria Quay Conference Room 1 Edinburgh EH6 6QQ
Friday 4 May 2018 (12:00-17:00)

Our ESRC funded Brexit project, as part of the UK in a Changing Europe Initiative, aims to examine in detail the likely impacts of Brexit on the UK’s sectors, regions, and cities. Our analysis draws upon the most detailed regional-national-international trade and competition datasets currently available anywhere in the world, allowing us to examine the impacts of different post-Brexit trade scenarios on UK sectors and regions.

It is critical that we ensure that these academic outputs connect with broader public policy arenas at the national and regional level. Therefore, we are a hosting a series of participatory workshops across the country to engage with city, regional and national stakeholders. The aim of these workshops is to share our regional-specific research findings and collaborate with stakeholders to develop alternative post-Brexit scenarios, considering both what city-regional authorities want and also what policy responses are likely to be most effective.

The workshop will take place at Victoria Quay (conference room 1), Edinburgh EH6 6QQ on Friday 4th May from 12.00 – 5.00 pm. Our speakers will bring together a diverse range of views from across the realms of academia, politics, and business, including academics as Professor Anand Menon (The UK in a Changing Europe) and Dr. Katy Hayward (Queen’s University of Belfast) and representatives from the devolved administrations governments such as Simon Fuller (Scottish government), Jonathan Price (Welsh Government) and Shane Murphy (Northern Ireland Government), among many others.
