Speakers will discuss; Supply-Side Policy in the Context of Brexit (Nick Crafts); UK Public Procurement before, during and after the British membership of the EU (David Clayton & David Higgins); Standardisation, Popular Politics and Euroscepticism in Britain (Aashish Velkar); Lessons from the Past for Brexit?

(Piers Ludlow); British Political Tradition and the Crisis of Brexit (Martin Smith); The UK and the EU in the Past and Future of Global Economic Order (Tony Heron).

Based on historical experiences, what economic opportunities might the Commonwealth of Nations offer a post-Brexit Britain?
As the UK seeks a new place in the global economy post-Brexit, the Commonwealth of Nations is often touted as a possible alternative. In a week in which Commonwealth leaders meet the Commonwealth Trade Conference, historians, policy makers and other experts meet to consider the potential of Commonwealth economic relations in historical perspective.
CHAIR: Dr Marc-William Palen, Lecturer, University of Exeter and Co-director, Global Economics and History Forum (History & Policy)
Tim Hewish, Director of Policy & Research, The Royal Commonwealth Society and Co-Founder, Commonwealth Exchange
Dr Surender Munjal, Director, James E. Lynch India and South Asia Business Centre, University of Leeds
Dr Andrew Dilley, Senior Lecturer, University of Aberdeen and Co-director, Global Economics and History Forum (History & Policy)
