About the Speech:

In his presentation to the IIEA, Nicolas Véron argued that the UK’s vote to leave the European Union has created a new set of parameters for EU policy and will have structural consequences for the dynamics of European integration. His presentation offered a holistic assessment of possible medium-term consequences for the EU and, in particular, its financial system.
