Center for European Studies presents: Samuel Marc Lowe - Brexit: Customs Union, EEA, FTA, WTF

Samuel Marc LoweFriends of the Earth

Brexit isn't going well. The British Government is internally divided between those who seek to remain within the Single Market--whether like Norway (via membership of the European Economic Association [EEA]), or like Switzerland (via membership of a Free Trade Association [FTA]--and those who seek a so-called "Hard Brexit," which would see the UK outside both the Customs Union and the Single Market. Lurking in the background is the bigger question: Does the UK intend to follow the United States regulatory model or the European regulatory model?

Samuel Marc Lowe leads Friends of the Earth’s policy and advocacy work on trade and Brexit. He also sits on the board of the Trade Justice Movement, a UK coalition of nearly seventy civil society organizations, and the steering committee of the soon-to-be-launched UK Trade Forum. Lowe is widely acknowledged as one of the leading commentators on the politics of international trade.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
