Seminar on the Impact of Brexit on Citizens Rights

28 March 2017, Belfast

5 Takeaways on Brexit – Outlining Possible Scenarios for a New UK-EU Relationship and their Impact on Citizens

Tuesday 28 March 2017, 10.30am – 13.30pm, Belfast

This event is a part of the project Brexit Takeaways, which aims to provide citizens with evidence-based information on how the final deal reached between the EU and the UK might impact their rights, in order to allow them to back the best deal when negotiations start and assert their rights once an agreement is reached.

It will be of interest to citizens, academics, citizens’ information and advice organisations, human rights organisations, migrants’ rights organisations, and also business groups.

The programme comprises short presentations, followed by discussions and questions to the panel of speakers.
