SPERI has recently published a new research paper entitled ‘The Political Economy of Brexit and the UK’s National Business Model’. The paper draws together contributions from a series of workshops which ran throughout 2016 funded by the White Rose Consortium.

The paper includes contributions from the three organisers of the workshop series, Scott Lavery (SPERI, Sheffield), Lucia Quaglia (York) and Charlie Dannreuther (Leeds) as well as contributions from Gabriel Siles-Brugge (Warwick), Nicole Lindstrom (York), Ben Rosamond (Copenhagen), Scott James (KCL) and Jonathan Perraton (Sheffield).

The paper offers an overview of the political economy of Brexit across a number of policy areas, including finance, trade, investment, the labour market and regional development.

Written in the period between the June 2016 vote and the March 2017 Article 50 ‘trigger’, the paper provides a summary of some of the key challenges and tensions as the UK embarks upon the process of exiting the EU.
