Now that the British government has set a referendum date on Britain’s membership in the European Union, the time is nigh for real debate around the implications a Brexit may have for Northern Ireland. The ‘leave’ camp argue that a British withdrawal would save the taxpayer billions and free Britain from an economic burden. The ‘remain’ campaign argue that exit would lead to deep economic uncertainty and cost thousands, perhaps millions, of jobs. So what really are the likely impacts?
Following on from a recent report on the impact of Brexit for the Republic of Ireland by the Economic and Social Research Institute, Dr Edgar Morgenroth will look at the possible implications for Northern Ireland. This talk will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A chaired by John Campbell, BBC Northern Ireland’s Economics and Business Editor.
Refreshements will be available from 17:30, before the talks begin at 18:00. There is no charge to attend this lecture, though early registration is advised.
