The United Kingdom is slated to leave the European Union at 11:00pm GMT on Friday, March 29, 2019. As the clock ticks towards the deadline, the possibility of a hard Brexit is becoming real and the UK would leave without a deal in place with the EU. Should the no-deal-scenario happen, this does not mean that on day one after Brexit there will not be any treaties, agreements and other arrangements in force to govern the relations between the UK and EU member states and other countries.
This panel will explore some examples. Panelists will give an overview of the remaining general Brexit scenarios and focus on what will happen in different, concrete areas: EU regulatory arrangements with third countries; what they mean for the UK; cross-border transfers of personal data after the deadline; how data protection laws may restrict such transfers; and the status of the protection of social, economic and cultural rights of Europeans living in the UK after the country has left the EU.
