The decision by the United Kingdom to withdraw from the European Union is more than two years old. What will happen on Brexit day on 29 March next year? What kind of deal, if any, will Britain negotiate? What will be the impact on the infighting in British politics and within Prime Minister Theresa May’s government?
As the country neared the date set for the conclusion of negotiations with Brussels, the Lowy Institute hosted a panel of experts to discuss the outcomes of either a ‘deal’ or ‘no deal’ scenario, the outlook for the United Kingdom after Brexit, and the consequences for Australia and its ties with both London and Brussels.
Melbourne's panel included Tom Bentley, former director of London based think tank, Demos, and now Adviser to the Vice Chancellor at RMIT University, and Dr Euan Graham, Senior Fellow at the Lowy Institute. The panel was moderated by Daniel Flitton, Managing Editor of Lowy Institute's The Interpreter.
