Brexit and Trade: Moving from globalisation to self-reliance - Rupert Read (PPL)

Brexit and Trade: Moving from globalisation to self-reliance

Rupert Read (PPL) recently co-authored the Green-Party-commissioned report Brexit and Trade with Victor Anderson of Green House, published by Molly Scott Cato MEP. This report represents a shift away from the destructive globalisation of recent years towards an inclusive, citizen-focused future for the global, post-Brexit economy. The report outlines 23 recommendations for more environmentally friendly and citizen responsible trade policies that will influence decisions in coming debates around Brexit. The report includes, inter alia, defence of the Precautionary Principle, threatened by Brexit (and the subject of RR's Impact Case Study for this REF).
