‘Brexit means Brexit’ – but what does that mean?

EU flag

We all know that “Brexit means Brexit” – and the University of East Anglia (UEA) is hosting two public events to examine exactly what that means. Expert panellists will discuss what’s at stake, the options facing the government and ask what kind of Britain we want, then open the conversation to the floor to give the audience the opportunity to raise questions that concern them.

“The Future of UK Business” will be debated on Thursday 24 November, when Dr Angus Armstrong, Director of Macroeconomics at the National Institute for Economic and Social Research (NIESR); Luke Morris, Chartered Accountant; Jonathan Portes, Principal Research Fellow at NIESR and Dr Thomas Sampson from the London School of Economics discuss the implications of Brexit for British companies.

This will be followed on Thursday 1 December by “Brexit and Your Future as Citizen, Consumer and Taxpayer”, with UEA’s Amelia Fletcher OBE, Prof of Competition Policy; Andy Jordan, Prof of Environmental Politics; Andreas Stephan, Prof of Competition Law and Catherine Waddams, Prof of Regulation, who will discuss the likely consequences of Brexit for ordinary citizens.

Both events are free, run from 6.30-8pm and everyone is welcome to attend. “The Future of UK Business” will be held at the Thomas Paine Study Centre, UEA, and “Brexit and Your Future as Citizen, Consumer and Taxpayer” takes place at the Julian Study Centre, UEA. There is no need to book, but space is limited so early arrival is advised.
