Agence France Presse: One Year from Brexit, Transition Set to Absorb Shock

Politics and International Relations 4 April 2018

Dr Magdalena Frennhoff Larsen, Lecturer in Politics, was interviewed by the news agency, Agence France Presse (AFP), and commented on the Brexit transition deal agreement, just a year away before Britain leaving the EU.

In her interview for AFP, Dr Frennhoff Larsen said that “Britain’s stated aim would be hard to achieve” adding, “while both sides will aim to minimize the negative impact on the economy, which will follow from the UK’s exit, the EU has made it clear that the UK terms cannot be better than those offered by membership.”

Her comments were featured in 15 outlets including France 24, Metro News, Yahoo News and OpenNews 24.
