About the lecture

Nothing is agreed, till all is agreed. The precise form of Brexit remains unclear. A good reason to investigate the implications of various scenarios. In this talk Laura van Geest will analyze the various channels through which Brexit will affect the economy (trade, migration) and present some estimates of the effects under different scenarios.
