Professor Piet Eeckhout, Dean of UCL Faculty of Laws, gave evidence on Brexit and transition to the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee on 5 December 2017.

The subject of the meeting was ‘Home Office delivery of Brexit: policing and security cooperation.’

Professor Eeckhout said:

‘I was delighted to have had the opportunity to give evidence to the House of Commons Home Affairs Select Committee. 

It was a stimulating meeting, with lots of good questions about the Brexit transition and the scope for a close relationship with the EU under a new security treaty. There was consensus that a lot of work still needs to be done, and that time is really running out.’
