Understanding EU Business views on Brexit

Date: Friday 31 March 2017

Time: 13.00-16.00

Venue: Boardroom, ICOSS Building, University of Sheffield

The Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute (SPERI) will be holding a roundtable event on the afternoon of Friday 31st March at the University of Sheffield.

The roundtable, funded by the ESRC and entitled “Understanding EU Business views on Brexit”, will bring together a small group of selected participants to discuss the key findings of two SPERI Policy Briefings entitled Brexit and alternative EU financial centres and Brexit and the views of EU businesses. These policy briefings analyse (a) the strategic positioning of rival financial centres in Frankfurt, Paris and Dublin and how these may threaten the City of London’s position as a central hub of growth within the UK economy (b) the views of employer organisations, businesses and policymakers in key EU member states on the kind of trade deal they would like to initiate with the UK following Brexit.

Panellists include:

  • Alex Cobham (Tax Justice Network)
  • Allie Renison (Institute of Directors)
  • Neil Foster (GMB Union)
  •  Mick Moran (Manchester Business School)
