In the wake of the UK’s Brexit vote, and the centrality of EU free movement, especially free movement of persons, to the vote to leave, this roundtable will bring together experts to consider ‘what next?’ for free movement of persons between the UK and the EU. A wide variety of different models of cooperation will be explored, including the European Economic Area, EU association agreements, the World Trade Organisation, the ASEAN Free Trade Area, and the North American Free Trade Agreement. The position under the (now rejected) re-negotiation agreement between the EU and UK of earlier this year will also be considered, in light of the origins of free movement of persons within the UK, as they were envisaged in the Spaak Report of 1956.

As well as increasing knowledge among roundtable participants, this event will lead to the creation of a series of short videos, which we hope will inform broader public debate about alternatives to EU free movement.
