The UK faces the simultaneous challenges of Brexit and Covid-19. Either would stretch any nation’s economy to the limit and Covid has arguably hit the UK’s economy harder than its EU neighbours’. The uncertainties surrounding these twin challenges and basic nature of any initial deal with the UK’s most important trade partner, will weigh on the country’s economy in the months and years ahead. 

This conference is devoted to the advancement of the understanding of the entire spectrum of policy and control issues following exit from the Covid-19 crisis and from the European Union. 

The conference is open to the public with no registration fee. Register for the conference here.
