Gabriel Siles-Brügge speaks at European Parliament on Brexit and health policy

PAIS academic Gabriel Siles-Brügge recently spoke at an event organized by EU-level health organisations in the European Parliament (on Thursday, 27 September 2018).

Drawing on his ongoing work into the political economy of Brexit and the future EU-UK economic partnership, Gabriel stressed two things. Firstly, that Brexit was likely to be an ongoing process beyond March 2019, requiring constant engagement from the health policy community and, secondly, that the options to maintain existing health policy collaborations outside of an EEA-style arrangement were relatively limited.

Gabriel is also an adviser to the European Public Health Alliance on trade and investment policy issues, but spoke in a personal capacity.
