NIESR Workshop – Impact of Brexit

Impact of Brexit

Aims and Scope of the Workshop

The National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) is hosting a one-day workshop on the “Impact of Brexit” on Friday 17 November, at NIESR’s Office, 2 Dean Trench Street, SW1P 3HE. The event will be in-
person only.

Brexit has cast a long shadow over the UK economy, with its impact masked by the Covid-19 pandemic and the crisis in Ukraine. Disentangling those effects is not straightforward. This workshop will revaluate the factors introduced and examine the ongoing impact of Brexit.

There will be contributions from academic and policy-oriented researchers and leading experts on International Economics, Trade, Economic Growth, Development and more broadly, the macroeconomic impacts of Brexit. These include: Swati Dhingra (LSE and Bank of England), Thiemo Fetzer (University of Warwick and NIESR), Daniela Glocker (OECD), Stephen Millard (NIESR), Jonathan Portes (King’s College), Thomas Sampson (LSE), Alan Winters (University of Sussex), and Katrin Forster-van Aerssen and Tajda Spital (ECB).
