On 23 November 2017, the DCU Brexit Institute hosted an event on “Brexit, the Financial Settlement and the Future of EU Finances”, organised in cooperation with the European Parliament Information Office in Ireland.
The workshop followed previous events on citizens’ rights and the border and examined specifically the third issue in the ongoing withdrawal negotiations: namely the financial settlement that the UK is expected to pay to the EU. In addition, the workshop considered also the impact that Brexit has on the future of EU finances, including proposals for further integration in the Eurozone.
The event featured an opening keynote speech by Baroness Falkner of Margravine (Chairwoman of the UK House of Lords EU Financial Affairs Sub-Committee) and a closing keynote speech by Mairead McGuinness (Vice President of the European Parliament).
The event also featured the participation of leading academics, business leaders and policy-makers, including Tony Foley (Dublin City University), Michael Keating (Center on Constitutional Change), Colm Kelpie (Irish Independent), Thilo Maurer (European Commission) and Kim Lane Scheppele (Princeton University).
The programme of the event is available here.
