Law

UK companies need to act now to prepare for the loss of the EU right to freedom of establishment, advises Law School legal expert

The third paper in a new GLOBE Centre Policy Brief Series was published yesterday. The Future of UK-EU Corporate Mobility explores the risk that, after Brexit, UK companies operating in the EU could cease to be recognised by their host nations. This could lead to contracts and claims being deemed unenforceable and shareholders could become exposed to unlimited personal liability. Businesses with an EU presence, their shareholders and their creditors should act now to understand the risks.

Politics and International Studies

Panel discussion: Markets VS Democracy? Domestic politics and Eurozone governance in the crisis and beyond

Panel discussion: Markets VS Democracy? Domestic politics and Eurozone governance in the crisis and beyond

Wednesday 20th June, 6pm - 8pm, Room S0.28

The skyrocketing of risk premiums on sovereign debt in Southern Europe, and a narrowly avoided constitutional crisis in Italy, recently conjured up the spectre of the Eurozone crisis, and reignited the debate about the fraught relationship between domestic politics, European integration, and market discipline. This event seeks to discuss the persisting tensions between democratic aspirations and the constraining character of Eurozone pressures. Speakers will draw on experiences from Italy, Spain and Greece, as well as recent developments in European economic governance to address the issues of technocracy, depoliticization, and state autonomy. There will then be time for Q&A and open debate.
 
Confirmed speakers: Alexis Moraitis (PAIS, Warwick), Javi Moreno Zacares (PAIS, Warwick), Muireann O’Dwyer (PAIS, Warwick), Arianna Tassinari (Warwick Business School).
 
This event is organised by Warwick PhD students in Politics and International Studies, WBS and Italian Studies, with the kind support of PAIS. All welcome.
