The United Kingdom is scheduled to leave the European Union on Friday, March 29, 2019. But there is currently uncertainty about whether the break will be "soft," "hard," or even final on that day. While negotiations are underway on a "transition" period, one of the most complex questions during this phase concerns the UK's future economic relationship with the EU.

Ambassador Charles Ries and RAND senior economist Howard Shatz will brief RAND alumni and supporters about the various Brexit options and how they could impact U.S. economic, foreign policy, and security interests.
