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).

About the speaker:
Gabriel Siles-Brügge is a Reader (Associate Professor) in Public Policy at the University of Warwick, UK and a current Visiting Scholar in the Department of Political Science at Carleton University. He is also a Specialist Adviser to the UK House of Commons International Trade Committee.


This event is co-hosted by CN-Paul M. Tellier Chair on Business and Public Policy at the University of Ottawa and The Jean Monnet Network on Transatlantic Trade Politics at Carleton University.
