Short-term losses - Nick Crafts on the economics of Brexit

Conference organised by CAGE, NIESR, and the ESRC UK in a Changing Europe initiative.

Event organisers Angus Armstrong, Sascha Becker, Anand Menon and Vera Troeger.

The purpose of the conference was to bring together leading economists working on the questions related to UK and European relations to present their latest findings on the costs and benefits of membership. The aim was to present the findings of up to date and rigorous economic assessments to an audience of key non-academic stakeholders and opinion formers. The conference took place over two working days after the key European Council meeting scheduled to consider the UK’s proposals for reform of the EU.
