Taking Interdependency Seriously: Brexit and the Rising Powers with Professor Alan Winters
Post-Brexit Britain will be an outward looking champion of the global system, we are told. This will inevitably involve a serious engagement with the Rising Powers – more serious, in fact, than Britain has managed until now. Professor Alan Winters, Director of the UK Trade Policy Observatory at the University of Sussex, will first consider the importance of the Rising Powers to Britain’s trade aspirations, and then how policy might be configured to assist them – both multilateral policy, via the World Trade Organisation, and possible bilateral arrangements of the sort that have figured prominently in the Brexit narrative.
This lecture is part of the Rising Powers Public Lecture Series, which forms part of the final conference and culmination of the ESRC's five year research programme on "Rising Powers and Interdependent Futures", exploring the role of Brazil, China, India, Russia and South Africa in the global economy.
