Global Conference 2018

The Breckoning: The Endgame for Great Britain and Europe in 2019

On March 29, 2019, at 11 p.m. GMT, Great Britain will officially leave the European Union. But the two sides have yet to finalize the grand deals that will define their epochal split. Prime Minister May has proposed a "managed divergence" from E.U. rules, retaining certain economic policies and scrapping others. Meanwhile, the Europeans are taking a tough line on trade. Given that all free-trade rules are, essentially, bespoke, is Britain's approach all that demanding? How are negotiations likely to turn out, and in whose favor?
