The project considers and analyses how the UK can best organise its departure from the EU and the Single Market, promoting constitutional independence, free trade and a free market economy.

A series of publications and events will focus on four themes:

  • Leaving the Single Market: the Economic Options for the UK: what principles should guide policy for the UK economy in line with its tradition of free markets, dynamic global trade and a revitalised economy?
  • How to Leave the EU: Next steps for UK Financial Services: assessment of current framework for financial services, how it operates and how it affects the different businesses working in the sector. It considers the options for UK financial services post-Brexit and how the UK can continue to lead globally and in the EU.
  • Next Steps for the UK Economy and Prosperity: the steps needed to negotiate a successful exit from the EU and adjust economic policy to put prosperity first. Britain’s monetary and fiscal policy options, and changes needed across a wider front (education, energy, transport, taxation, budgets and trade) will be discussed.
  • Constitutional and Legal Arrangements for the UK’s Future Trade: the legal basis for UK global trade deals with third countries outside the EU; arrangements for forging new trade deals post-Brexit, taking over from the EU those free trade deals with countries to which Britain is already a party; the future framework for UK-EU trade relations and the best legal options for Britain’s strategy in negotiating future access to the EU’s Single Market.

Contributing to the programme are economists, business leaders, politicians and academic and industry specialists.
