Research Seminar: “Brexit and the Single Market” with Dr. Michelle Egan

March 13, 2019 at 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM

Location:2017 Dunton Tower

The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence and the Department of Political Science are pleased to organize a co-hosted research seminar, Brexit and the Single Market with Professor Michelle Egan, School of International Service, American University.

About the Event: The vote to leave the European Union and the administrative chaos surrounding British “exit” have dominated domestic debate in the United Kingdom, where “leaving the single market” is described by supporters as a seamless solution to economic and social divisions within British society.  It is more accurately viewed as transforming the British state in profound and unpredictable ways, and as a countermovement against the neoliberal mode of European integration and a disruption to the single market. This discussion will review the domestic impacts for the UK of leaving the single market, the effect of Brexit on the single market in Europe, and the safeguards in place to mitigate the risks on the European single market.

About the Speaker: Michelle Egan is Professor and Jean Monnet Chair ad personam in the School of International Service at American University in Washington, DC. She is a Council of Foreign Relations Fellow (Canada). Her research focuses on economic integration in Europe and the United States, trade policy, as well as transatlantic relations.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required to attend.

This event is organized by Carleton University’s Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, which is funded by Erasmus + Programme of the European Union, and the Department of Political Science at Carleton University.
