What effect will the UK’s departure from the European Union have on British regions and cities?

Professor Raquel Ortega-Argiles of the University of Birmingham offers an overview of her research project examining the likely impact of Brexit, using detailed regional-national-international trade and competition data.

At the moment the only parts of the UK which are represented in policy debates are the four nations [England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland]. Our research is going to look at all the UK’s sectors, regions, and cities where the impact of Brexit is likely to throw up major challenges for devolution.
