Exiting the EU & Britain after Brexit

Britain after Brexit

Now that the date is set for our departure from the EU and the end of the transition period, we continue to look at the impact on Britain's economy, trade, services, education, and other policy areas of Government. Our work on these topics is available here.

After the Vote

Since the Referendum result we have turned our attention to the different trade-offs in play as Britain invoked Article 50 and prepared for exit. Among other things, we have been analysing the effects of uncertainty on sterling and business investment, and the corresponding rise of inflation, the impact of different types of trade deals on the volumes of trade and the consequences of future changes to free movement on labour markets, the welfare system and the economy more widely.

Our continuing work on these topics is available here

The Referendum

What are the key considerations when examining what sort of relationship Britain ought to pursue with the rest of the EU? These are not only highly charged political questions, but also of profound importance to the future economic prosperity. NIESR has been applying its expertise on the issues raised by the prospect of an EU exit all through the EU referendum campaign.  Our work on these topics can be viewed here. ​
