BREXIT lecture series

An evidence based lecture series running throughout 2016/2017

The decision by the British electorate to leave the European Union has led to many open questions about the likely impact on the UK, what future relations with the EU will look like and what the consequences of some future decisions could be.


To help answer some of these questions and give an insight into what Brexit could mean, the Business School is hosting a series of lectures which will take an evidence-based look at some of the key areas affected by Brexit. Each session will be delivered by an academic expert and will explore broad topics such as immigration, trade or the NHS.


Events are open to everyone and will also give you an opportunity to ask academic experts questions on the issue that has divided the nation.


The next lecture in the series will look at the reasons for the increase in labour market inequality, why manufacturing and other routine middle-income jobs have been lost and the consequences of this. Future events include: An insider’s view to how the Brexit negotiations may be handled; How will Brexit affect employment relations and has the EU made us richer? And will leaving it make us poorer?
