British House of Commons Report cites Brexit research Joris Larik
The British House of Commons International Trade Committee quoted Dr. Joris Larik, Assistant Professor of Comparative, EU and International Law at Leiden University College The Hague, in its report on the “Continuing application of EU trade agreements after Brexit”.
Written evidence submitted by Larik on the issue of uncertainty about the future of international agreements post-Brexit had already been published by the Committee.
In its report, the Committee noted Joris Larik’s concerns regarding the “lack of congruence between supposedly definitive databases maintained by the EU and the US Government” as well as the need to “clarify which treaties are currently in force” with important external partners and which might need to be renegotiated by the UK. His evidence was based on his recent research project entitled “Forms of Foreign Policy Collaboration in the Unraveled Transatlantic Space”, which he conducted as a Fulbright-Schuman Fellow at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), Johns Hopkins University, in Washington D.C. during the past semester.
The more detailed, academic account of his research is now available online as a working paper jointly published by DCU Brexit Institute in Dublin and the Center for Transatlantic Relations at SAIS. The final version of the paper is forthcoming this autumn in the University of Pennsylvania Journal of International Law, which is ranked in the top 10 of U.S. journals specialized in international law.
