In under a year, the UK will leave the EU. Citizens and businesses will want to understand the challenges that lie ahead.

During the first part of the session we´ll explore areas of the draft Withdrawal Agreement that have not yet been fully agreed, such as enforcement of rights and obligations arising under the agreement. During the second part of the session, we´ll discuss aspects of the Aviation sector (and related issues) as an illustrative case study to identify some of the themes to be addressed in a post-transition future.

Schedule: The session will be held between 14:00 and 16:30 hours, reserving the first half-hour for an informal snack.
