Plenary Six - Governance in the UK post Brexit

Brexit – the single most controversial policy in British and European politics of the last decade, and only now are we seeing its reality. In place of the European Commission, we have a whole new world of environmental law and governance operating through varying regimes across the four UK nations. How have those legal regimes been translating into reality? Will we see divergence, and if so, where? How have each of the new national governance bodies been handling their briefs and are changes already required? Join us and our supercharged panel of both industry representatives and academic experts for what promises to be a lively discussion and debate on our new governance reforms.
