We are very pleased to co-host a webinar with the CN-Paul M. Tellier Chair on Business and Public Policy, “Free to Trade: Global Britain and the Sovereignty Trap”, by Professor Gabriel Siles-Brügge (University of Warwick).

About the webinar:

The freedom to negotiate trade agreements was not a key demand of Brexit supporters before and during the 2016 EU referendum. Why, then, has an independent trade policy become so central to the UK Government’s Brexit project? And what are the consequences for the conduct of UK trade negotiations of not having established a clear trade strategy?

The presentation is based on a book project with Tony Heron (University of York).
