Fundamental Rights in the Age of Brexit: Who Is Really Taking Back the Control?
Résumé : Brexit – the process by which the United Kingdom formally left the European Union in January 2020 – has had a profound impact on British politics, culture and wider society. Given the important role which the EU has played in extending rights and freedoms to Union citizens, particular concern has been raised about whether such rights will continue to apply in the post-Brexit era. In this lecture, we will explore the impact of Brexit for UK law, asking whether the price of ‘taking back control’ has been a (inevitable or otherwise) reduction in fundamental rights.
