The Brexit referendum has triggered a complex set of chain reactions which are difficult to apprehend.
For this event, we would like to shed the light on two key dimensions:
- Firstly, Erik Jones will reflect on the political economy of Brexit. From a continental perspective, Brexit is yet another expression of the growing skepticism towards the old visions of Europe as an integrating machine. From a British perspective, Brexit is challenging the way the UK may integrate the world economy in the future, with a new model to invent,
- Secondly, Vincent Vicard will reflect on the consequences of Brexit on international trade. The UK-EU bilateral trade will be redesigned and some future features of the latter are already identified. He will also analyse the potential impact on flows of goods and services for the UK economy and its EU partners.
