This event will challenge the narrative that Europe is in decline, by asking whether Europe does in fact rule the world.
This even will feature the presentation of the book: “The Brussels Effect: How the European Union rules the world” by Anu Bradford. She argues that the European Union has a significant amount of power on a global level. The EU shows this power in different policy areas such as data privacy, consumer safety, environmental protection and competition rules. The book also looks at the implications for the UK after Brexit. Anu Bradford argues that regardless of the nature of the relationship after Brexit, the UK will not be able to escape the EU’s regulatory reach.
This event will be livestreamed, there is no need to register for the livestream.

AI markets are young and their structure is yet to crystallise. Is European competition law ready for what happens next?
The gap between payments into the EU budget and EU spending in a particular country has importance when EU spending does not constitute European public goods, or there are risks for their improper use. I estimate that the Juncker Commission’s proposal for the next seven-year budget would lead to big reductions (as a share of GNI) in the net payments to most central European countries, while the changes for other countries seem small
Will Brexit damage Britain's financial services industry? Or is talk of its diminished status just a storm in a teacup? The City of London could move closer to Wall Street or it might become "Singapore-on-Thames". Nicholas Barrett talks to Rebecca Christie about banking after Brexit.
