19/06/2017 - 21/06/2017 - Explaining Brexit – Understanding Brexit

The Department of International Relations and European Studies at MUP is excited to invite you to the three-day "Explaining Brexit – Understanding Brexit" Certificate Course, starting from 19 June 2017 in Prague.

This certificate programme provides an interactive environment that links the Czech political, business and academic communities with their British counterparts.

While the course is based around the presentations of key individuals coming from the United Kingdom and specialists from the Czech Republic, there are also plenty of opportunities to meet participants and speakers in more social environments and therefore to develop stronger bonds that will assist in generating better informed choices in a post-Brexit Europe.

This Certificate aims to:

  • increase the participants understanding of the Brexit process
  • address key economic, security and social implications of Brexit
  • create a multi-sectoral environment for discussions
  • create an opportunity for participants to specialise in a unique political Framework

  • Block I: What is BREXIT?
  • Block II: BREXIT and Trade Implications
  • Block III: BREXIT and Macro-Economic Implications
  • Block IV: BREXIT and Security Implications
