Seminar on the consequences of Brexit

The Ministry of European Integration, in cooperation with the Hanns Seidel Foundation, has organised today an online seminar titled ‘Brexit, withdrawal from the European Union – legal implications for candidate countries’. Civil servants from numerous institutions had an opportunity to learn more about the consequences of a member state’s decision to withdraw from the EU in accordance with Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union. With regard to Brexit, the seminar discussed the withdrawal from the EU with or without a deal, the legal implications in both cases, and the effects of the withdrawal on various sectors such as competition, transport, agriculture, energy etc.

The participants particularly had an opportunity to learn about the possible ways the UK’s withdrawal can affect Serbia’s EU accession process, and about potential risks to all future enlargements. The lecturer was Jelisaveta Tasev from the Ministry of European Integration.
