ICON-S Britain and Ireland – 2019 Annual Conference
April 24 @ 10:00 am - April 25 @ 4:15 pm
The UK’s decision to withdraw from the EU involves a major change to – and major test of – the UK’s constitutional arrangements, the precise implications of which remain unclear. It is also an event of profound significance for the UK’s closest neighbour, Ireland, and for the EU itself. Barring a decision to delay or revoke the Article 50 process, the UK will cease to be a member of the EU on 29 March 2019. This conference will mark the UK’s withdrawal from the EU by reflecting on the constitutional legacy (for the UK, Ireland, and the EU) of 45 years of UK membership of the EU, the constitutional implications of the conduct of the withdrawal process, the likely impact of Brexit on the UK’s domestic constitutional order, and the constitutional significance of post-Brexit relationships with Ireland, with the EU, with new trading partners, and with other external organisations, such as the Council of Europe.
