Center for European Studies presents: Samuel Marc Lowe - Brexit: Customs Union, EEA, FTA, WTF
Samuel Marc Lowe, Friends of the EarthBrexit isn't going well. The British Government is internally divided between those who seek to remain within the Single Market--whether like Norway (via membership of the European Economic Association [EEA]), or like Switzerland (via membership of a Free Trade Association [FTA]--and those who seek a so-called "Hard Brexit," which would see the UK outside both the Customs Union and the Single Market. Lurking in the background is the bigger question: Does the UK intend to follow the United States regulatory model or the European regulatory model?
Samuel Marc Lowe leads Friends of the Earth’s policy and advocacy work on trade and Brexit. He also sits on the board of the Trade Justice Movement, a UK coalition of nearly seventy civil society organizations, and the steering committee of the soon-to-be-launched UK Trade Forum. Lowe is widely acknowledged as one of the leading commentators on the politics of international trade.
