Brexit: The Shipping Forecast

How does Brexit look from the other side of the channel? Anand Menon considers what the EU 27 want, focusing on trade at three very different ports: Calais, Rotterdam and Gdansk.

How does the UK's departure from the European Union look from the other side of the English Channel? Anand Menon considers what the EU 27 want from Brexit by focusing on the consequences for trade at for three very different ports: Calais, our nearest neighbour, Rotterdam, the giant of European ports, and Gdansk in Poland, a country which has its own issues with the European Commission. Will the EU nations continue to operate as a unified front, as in the first stage of negotiations, or will cracks start to appear once questions of economic self-interest become more apparent? Professor Menon heads the award-winning think tank The UK in a Changing Europe.
