Brexit: Challenges and Opportunities for Small States

Join the Centre for Small States for a Leverhulme seminar on the challenges and opportunities that small states and entities face in relation to Brexit. A panel of five experts on small states will reflect on the political, economical and societal consequences of Brexit for small European states, British overseas territories and Crown dependencies. 

The aim of the panel discussion is to answer questions such as: 
  • How will Brexit change the relationship between Britain and these small states / entities?
  • What does 'hard' and 'soft' Brexit mean for them?
  • How could these small states / entities react to the Brexit negotiations between Britain and the European Union in order to secure their interests? 
  • Dr Peter Clegg, Associate Professor in Politics and International Relations, UWE Bristol
  • Mr Paul Hardy, Brexit Director, DLA Piper
  • Ms Motselisi Matsela, Economic Adviser, Small States, Economic Policy Division, Commonwealth Secretariat
  • Dr Baldur Thorhallsson, Professor of Political Science and the Centre for Small State Studies, University of Iceland, and Leverhulme Visiting Professor at QMUL
