Briefing: Brexit and Trade Justice for the Global South

May 2017

The UK's decision to leave the EU means that, for the first time in 40 years, trade policy will return to UK government competence. In the two-year period in which Brexit negotiations take place, the UK government and public attention will inevitably be focused on negotiations with the EU. However, with the UK government's ability to negotiate its own trade deals comes a huge opportunity to achieve a truly progressive trade agenda for Southern countries.

This briefing is published by War on Want, alongside the Trade Justice Movement, Global Justice Now, Unison, and Friends of the Earth.
