BREXIT: What’s next? Implications for Law and Life
In a referendum on June 23, 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, triggering a process that will lead to termination of UK’s year membership since the mid-1970s. The UK and EU have commenced difficult negotiations to determine the terms of departure. The potential border, economic, labour and social dimensions are far-reaching for both the UK and EU, but also carry repercussions for Canada which recently concluded a trade agreement with the EU and has the UK as its largest European trading partner. This public event brings together prominent speakers who will speak to the different perspectives driving the UK and EU negotiations and expected outcomes, and the potential implications for Canada.
