Thursday 27th October, 2.30pm - 5.30pm
For many western countries questions of national identity have moved centre stage in the policy debate. In some instances the debate has focused on whether the state should oblige people to subscribe to an official identity. For all, there are major questions about the best course for education and schools.
On Thursday afternoon 27th October 2016, Politeia and St Antony’s College, University of Oxford, will jointly be holding a conference on The State, Education Policy and National Identity: Accountable and Successful Systems for Western Countries.
How to Leave the EU
Next Steps for the UK's Financial Services
3rd November, 12:15—13:15
As Britain prepares to leave the EU, the spotlight is on financial services. What course is best for London to stay as the world's leading financial centre? What steps are needed for Britain to lead the industry globally and world wide as HMG sets out to honour the Brexit mandate?
On 3rd November, Politeia's event, How to Leave the EU: Next Steps for the UK's Financial Services, will focus on some of the major issues now dominating the policy debate.
Speaking will be Barney Reynolds, head of Financial Institutions Advisory & Financial Regulatory Group, Global Co-Head of Financial Institutions at Shearman and Sterling, who will introduce his forthcoming Politiea publication, Financial Services - What Policy is Best for Leaving the EU? (working title)
Consumers v Producers in the New Brexit Economy
Britain should prepare to leave the Single Market to enforce Brexit, says Patrick Minford in Politeia’s next publication, Trading Places: Consumers v Producers in the New Brexit Economy. The goal should be access tothe Single Market under WTO rules in the same way as other successful economies – e.g. the US, Canada and Australia access it. Exiting the Single Market would bring huge savings by lifting the burdens of EU tariffs and regulations and ending subsidies to unskilled European migrant labour.
Leaving the EU - Legal and Trade Priorities for the New Britain
In How to Leave the EU - Legal and Trade Priorities for the New Britain, Martin Howe QC, proposes when and how Article 50 should be invoked to give the EU notice of departure.
The author, a distinguished EU lawyer, explains that the focus should be on the UK’s trade deals globally, with third countries outside the EU. The aim should be to take over free trade deals with such countries to which we are already party, simply replacing the EU with the UK as co-signatory without further elaborate renegotiations. For other new global trade deals, independence from the EU and its remaining 27 Member States, will facilitate the forging of fast and rapid deals.
