As the UK and the EU look ahead to their long-term relationship post-Brexit, what might the UK learn from the experiences of other European states that are outside the EU but have endeavoured to maintain close economic ties to it? What does life outside the EU offer? Is there a trade-off between market access and sovereignty? What are the implications for domestic politics and economics? This expert panel will probe beyond the rhetoric to outline the key issues.
