Brexit: an uncertain future

Tuesday 4 December 2018

Brexit poses profound challenges to the future of Britain and the European Union. The economic impact and the repercussions for global trade are among many areas of deep uncertainty.

This podcast considers the continuing fallout from the UK’s withdrawal – including the struggle to reach a compromise agreement in the UK national interest, the post-Brexit trading relationship between the UK and United States, and the difficult and complex transition facing the EU. Assessing the issues are:

  • Ken Clarke, former UK Chancellor, Home Secretary and Justice Secretary;
  • Vanessa Sciarra, Vice-President for Legal Affairs and Trade and Investment Policy at the National Foreign Trade Council;
  • Mary Robinson, the 7th President of Ireland; and
  • Romano Prodi, the 10th President of the European Commission.
