The Best Deal for Britain: The UK and the EU After the Referendum

In partnership with E!Sharp, the leave victory at the EU referendum has opened up a long period of uncertainty for Britain. The only factors that seem certain are that it will take several years to settle a new relationship between the UK and the EU – and the final outcome is impossible to predict.

The referendum campaign exposed real public anger with Europe but it didn’t provide hard answers about the shape of that future relationship. At times, some of the leave rhetoric appeared to reject any form of close partnership with the EU. Since the result, it has become clear that, no matter which side they campaigned for before 23 June, most senior politicians realise that to protect Britain’s prosperity a productive new accommodation between an exiting UK and the continuing EU will need to be struck.

This fringe will seek to look at the possible shape of that new deal and the Labour Party’s role in shaping it.
