Brexit: By Design or By Default? Assessing the state of the Withdrawal Process

To recommence the Brexit talks after the summer, the DCU Brexit Institute in Dublin partnered up with the MED to organise a panel debate on the possibility of a no-deal Brexit.

In partnership with the DCU Brexit Institute, the Mercator European Dialogue convened in Dublin to offer a space in which different perspectives on the development of the Brexit negotiations could be shared. At this full day event, network members from the UK, the Netherlands, Ireland and the Czech Republic expressed their views on the negotiations process, the involvement of national parliaments, and possible outcome scenarios. The theme of the event revolved around the possibility of a no-deal Brexit, which has become the default option in the case of disagreement between the UK and the EU. At the end of the day, Danuta Hübner, the Chairwoman of the European Parliament Constitutional Affairs Committee, closed the event with a keynote speech.
