This workshop is organised by the European Network on Independent Living (ENIL), in cooperation with the European Disability Forum (EDF) and the European Citizen Action Service (ECAS), with the financial support of the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust.
The aim of the workshop is to look at the impact Brexit is likely to have on the rights of disabled people and the work of disabled people’s organisations (DPOs), and to discuss how disabled people and their organisations can have a stronger voice in the ongoing Brexit negotiations. The findings of ECAS’ new study ‘5 Takeaways on Brexit: Outlining Possible Scenarios for a new UK-EU Relationship and the Impact on Citizens’ will be presented.
The workshop is taking place on 20 March, from 1:30 – 5:30 pm at Resource for London, in London. Click here to see the agenda and to register for this event. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
The debate is a part of the project Brexit Takeaways, which aims to provide citizens with evidence-based information on how the final deal reached between the EU and the UK might impact their rights, in order to allow them to back the best deal when negotiations start and assert their rights once an agreement is reached. A series of events are being organised in London, Northern Ireland, Gibraltar and Belgium, from February to June 2017, to disseminate and discuss the findings of the study on which this project is based. The partners acknowledge the financial support of the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust.
