In collaboration with the Economic and Social Research Council’s (ESRC) Festival of Social Science, Professor Sangeeta Khorana and Professor Jens Holscher will be coordinating an engaging workshop and panel discussion for local businesses to discuss the possible options around several pressing post-Brexit issues. These issues are;
- What form of economic relationship can be best re-negotiated within the short timespan (until October 2018) between the UK and EU?
- What will be the impact on small and medium sized British firms? What steps are proposed to endure that British firms remain competitive after Brexit?
- Implications for UK trade policy making, focusing in particular on future trade arrangements with the World Trade Organisation and other countries.
The Festival of Social Science offers a fantastic insight into some of the country’s leading social science research and its influence on our social, economic, and political lives both now and in the future. This event will be able to show insight from business leaders and the Commonwealth Secretariat on the issues around Brexit, as well as create a dialogue for businesses in the South West to have their opinions shared.
