Brexit has raised many questions about the future of the UK and the status of the devolution settlements. Most importantly for civil society, it has created both uncertainty and opportunities for the protection of environmental standards, the safeguarding of rights at work, and the future of consumer standards - to name but a few.
At the moment these questions are most critically raised in the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, the landmark Brexit legislation that aims to transpose EU law into UK law.
We want to make sure civil society has an opportunity to express their voice with this significant piece of legislation. Hosted by the Repeal Bill Alliance, this half day roundtable discussion will be an opportunity to express concerns and thoughts about Brexit’s impact on rights and standards. To get the conversation going, Jane Thomas- the coordinator of the Alliance will kick off with some introductory remarks and other speakers TBA. We we will also be discussing how civil society can work together and introduce our campaigns toolkit which is aimed for organisations who want to make sure that rights, protections, environment and devolution are still maintained post-Brexit.
The Repeal Bill Alliance is an alliance of over 70 advocacy, campaign and civil society groups that has been working collectively following the publication of the European Union (Withdrawal Bill). Organisations and sectors in human rights, the environment, consumer and workers rights, equality, democracy, food, farming, trade and further education are working together to ensure that rights, standards, environmental protections and devolution is protected as we make our exit from the European Union.
