What will be the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Brexit? More particularly, how might it affect the strategy and interests of the UK as it negotiates a longer-term relationship with the EU27? What if the timelines change? This panel of experts will consider different scenarios for what might happen and what they might mean.

Tim Besley is School Professor of Economics of Political Science and Sir W. Arthur Lewis Professor of Development Economics in the Department of Economics at LSE.

Wolfgang Münchau (@EuroBriefing) is Director of Eurointelligence and a columnist for the Financial Times.

Vicky Pryce (@realVickyPryce) is Chief Economic Advisor, Centre for Economics and Business Research and former Joint Head of the UK Government Economic Service. 

Tony Travers is Associate Dean of the School of Public Policy at LSE.

This event is part of LSE's public event series - COVID-19: The Policy Response.

COVID-19 represents an enormous challenge for the social sciences to help governments and non-governmental organisations respond to the economic and societal consequences of the pandemic. Part of LSE's response to this challenge is a series of online public events that will take place over the Summer Term.

This event in the series has been organised by the European Institute and the School of Public Policy.

The next event in this series will take place at 4pm on 22 June on COVID-19 in South Asia: Bangladesh, India and Pakistan.
