In late 2020, the United Kingdom and the European Union reached an historic accord that outlines new rules for the parties’ relationship following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. On 14 January 2021, the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law & Justice and the Institute for International Law and Justice’s MegaReg project cohosted a virtual roundtable on The Brexit Deal: A Less Perfect Union or a More Flexible Compact? Assessing the Draft EU UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement. Experts discussed issues raised by the new EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement and its policy implications. Participants included Gráinne de Búrca, Joseph Weiler, Meredith Crowley, Robert Howse, Imelda Maher, Daniel Sarmiento, Jesse Scott, and our own Thomas Streinz.
