After over 40 years as a key member of the EU, the UK voted in 2016 to leave the Union. The complicated process of “BREXIT” began. Four years (and three UK Prime Ministers) later, Boris Johnson’s Conservative Government led the UK out of the EU on January 21, 2020, with a transition process that ended on December 31, 2020. And, late last year, the EU-UK Trade & Cooperation Agreement, including the Northern Ireland Protocol, was signed.
The messy divorce proceedings may be over, but the implications of BREXIT are only now becoming fully realized. Join our panel of experts for a discussion on BREXIT’s significant impacts on global trade; global diplomacy, including Ireland’s relationship with the UK, EU, and US; the Northern Irish peace process; and what BREXIT means for those of us who live in the US.
Ireland Network Chicago is delighted to welcome our moderator Méabh McMahon of Euronews and our eminent panelists, including former Taoiseach and former EU Ambassador to the US, John Bruton; Steve Harper of Invest Northern Ireland; Simon McKeever of the Irish Exporters Association; and RTÉ’s Europe Correspondent, Tony Connelly.
Once registered, you will receive the Zoom link in advance of the event. Please check your email on the morning of Thursday April 15 for details.
