Taking place just two months before the UK is scheduled to leave the EU, the FEPS-Fabian New Year Conference will focus on the next stages of the Brexit negotiations and what leaving will mean for the UK and EU. Labour’s shadow Brexit secretary, Keir Starmer MP will deliver a keynote speech on Labour’s position and strategy leading up to and beyond the Brexit date.
The conference will also look beyond Brexit, to consider the UK and EU post-Brexit and a new left agenda, from defence and policing to the economy, mental health and much more. For the left to successfully transform the country, a strong Brexit deal must come alongside a compelling vision for the future and a radical social and economic programme.
