Where Brexit Ends  

A Talk by Samuel Marc Lowe, Center for European Reform

As the Brexit dates nears, the precise nature of the UK’s future relationship with the EU remains uncertain. The current Conservative Government  is still deeply divided on key issues concerning trade, security, and immigration. Prime Minister May faces the tricky task of getting any deal through Parliament. Samuel Marc Lowe offers us an updated account of the current state of play and some conjectures on where the UK will ultimately end up.
