Joris Larik hosts Brexit Policy Roundtable in The Hague
On 15 November 2019, Dr. Joris Larik, Assistant Professor at LUC and Convener of the International Justice major, convened a policy roundtable on “Brexit’s Next Chapter: The Revised Deal and Global Britain” .
Chatham House Rule
The event was funded by Leiden Global Interactions and co-organised by the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs and the Centre for the Law of EU External Relations (CLEER) of the T.M.C. Asser Institute. It brought together academics, policymakers, and diplomats, including from the Brexit Task Force of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, the British, Irish, Canadian and Moroccan Embassies in The Hague, and the European Commission Representation in the Netherlands. It was held under the Chatham House Rule.
Global Repercussions of Brexit
The roundtable focussed on two main themes: firstly, the Revised Withdrawal Agreement of October 2019, including the Revised Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland (also known as the “frontstop”); secondly, the global repercussions of Brexit, including the efforts of the United Kingdom to finalise “continuity agreements” with third countries, which serve to replace trade and other international agreements concluded by the EU.
