The DCU Brexit was created over a year ago, as Europe’s first and Ireland’s only centre specifically set up to analyse the implications of Brexit from both a research and policy perspective. During the past months, the DCU Brexit Institute has quickly established itself as a leading national and international forum to discuss Brexit and the future of Europe, receiving wide media coverage. The DCU Brexit Institute and ECDPM have come together to ensure that implications for international development receive appropriate attention in the ongoing debates and decisions.

The event on Brexit and international development cooperation that the DCU Brexit Institute is hosting together with ECDPM on 11 October in Dublin will focus specifically on the challenges and opportunities that the UK withdrawal from the EU poses for international development.
