Issue 33 of the IIEA Brexit Brief can be downloaded here.

On 20 December 2017, the European Commission published its Recommendation for a Council decision on the opening of the next phase of negotiations with the United Kingdom. The Recommendation provides some further details of the EU’s position on the post-Brexit transitional arrangements, which both sides see as crucial to mitigate damage from the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.

Issue 33 of the IIEA Brexit Brief highlights some of the notable points from the Commission document, and notes relevant developments in Ireland, the UK and the rest of the EU.

Brexit Brief, published by the IIEA’s UK Project Group, covers developments in the on-going debate over the UK’s vote to Leave the European Union. It is part of a wider communications programme, which will be highlighted on the Institute’s website.
