What is the impact of COVID-19 on Brexit negotiations and how has the EU responded to the current crisis? 

Dr Uta Staiger, Executive Director, UCL European Institute

Oliver Patel, Research Associate, UCL European Institute

The UCL European Institute’s Brexit & Beyond podcast is back, with our first episode recorded 100% remotely. In this episode, Brexit research assistant Annisha Jhatakia interviews Uta Staiger and Oliver Patel about the many ways COVID-19 is likely to impact the Brexit negotiations. 

They discuss whether the transition period will be extended, the realities of conducting negotiations remotely, and the EU's response to COVID-19 more broadly. 

This podcast was recorded on Thursday 26 March, before the EUCO videoconference. The speed of coronavirus developments means there may be new information by the time you listen. In the coming weeks, we will continue to provide more content and analysis as the situation develops.

The podcast is part of our new series COVID-19: The Pandemic and Europe.
