Programme Overview

This invaluable overview of the UK’s options and prospects after Brexit aims to provide participants with crucial knowledge of the current negotiations and how UK stakeholders can influence them, namely:

The Political Declaration on the UK’s future relations with the EU (including the question of future trade relations)

Trade agreements between the UK and non-EU countries such as the US, China, Japan and India
Changes to UK domestic policy as a result of leaving the EU, for example on transport, energy, the environment and climate change.

The course will cover the process of negotiating future trade relations with the EU, including the roles of the European Commission, Council and European Parliament. Participants will enhance their insight into how policy towards the negotiations is coordinated within the UK as well as the role of lobbying in the EU.

Who will benefit from attending?

Anyone whose work involves the EU, Brexit and related UK policy areas such as trade, industry, agriculture and the environment as well as regional and employment issues.

Objectives & Outcomes

You will have: 

  • enhanced your insight into how the future UK/EU relationship will work in practice and how to influence the process.
  • explored how the likely changes in the terms of trade will affect your professional interests.
  • strengthened your confidence in communicating and working with the European agenda within and beyond the UK.  

Organisational benefit

Organisations will benefit from their staff’s greater understanding of how the process of negotiating a new relationship with the EU will work and how to influence it as well as how the EU operates. This will enable them to work more effectively to develop and deliver organisational objectives on post-Brexit issues in the UK.
