On 28 February 2017, EURO-CEFG's Scientific Director Prof. Dr,. Fabian Amtenbrink was one of the speakers at the European Parliament during the workshop ‘Consequences of the Brexit’.
The objective of the workshop, which was very well-attended, was to provide a forum for discussion on possible consequences of Brexit on matters in competence of the Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection.
Prof. Amtenbrink spoke about Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty and the EU legal framework for the Brexit. Part of the event was led by EP member Vicky Ford, chairperson of the influential Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO). The workshop aimed to offer IMCO Members a possibility to discuss legal and economic implications of withdrawal of the UK from the EU, as well as scenarios for future cooperation between the EU and the UK.
