UK energy policy post-Brexit

Following the vote to leave, the energy industry once again is facing an uncertain future. Change is on the horizon as the UK’s role in the Internal Energy Market, future state aid rules and a host of EU regulations are thrown into doubt.

In this lecture leading figures from policy and industry will explore these doubts and the potential changes to energy policy post-Brexit and their implications for future investment.

Data protection and the future of customer data

As data and its analysis becomes ever more indispensable to a host of industries, regulations governing the acquisition, use and transfer of customer data become ever more important. Brexit presents the UK with a decision – to hew closely to the existing body of European law or forge its own path? This lecture will explore the different options open to the UK and the consequences of adopting a distinct approach to data protection.

Passporting: what access will UK financial institutions retain to EU markets?

As the financial services industry becomes ever more globalised, the ability to serve customers across Europe has grown to become a lynchpin of many UK financial firms’ strategies. The vote to leave throws up a host of different scenarios for UK-based financial services, from retaining single market access, equivalency under MiFIR and other legislation to having to fall back on WTO rules, which have little to say on questions of regulatory harmonisation. This lecture will explore these various scenarios, their impact on the UK financial services industry and what measures organisations can begin to take to prepare.

A global trade policy for the UK post-Brexit

Following the vote to leave the European Union, the UK must now conceive and execute a trade policy fit for a service-dominated economy in the 21st century. Having pooled responsibility for international trade in EU institutions for decades, the strategic, operational and personnel challenges this poses are substantial, but also presents the UK with a previously unknown freedom of navigation. The lecture will explore the international trade landscape in 2017 and the options open to a globally-minded UK.

The future of UK-EU aviation

Few industries are as reliant on cross-border regulation as aviation, and with Brexit throwing into doubt the UK’s place in a complex web of legal frameworks including the European Common Aviation Area and Open Skies agreements with the US there are a number of important questions facing the industry. This lecture will explore the potential scenarios post-Brexit and their implications for airlines and airports.

What next for UK competition policy?

Competition policy has traditionally been one of the strongest aspects of European Union competency, with DG Comp’s decisions shaping the evolution of many structurally important European industries. This lecture will explore the potential for renewed UK competition policy and state aid rules to act as an engine for growth and productivity.
