How will Brexit influence the UK’s transparency regime and how, in turn, will openness shape the UK’s Brexit process? There are three ways of looking at how Brexit may influence open government in the UK: through possible changes to old policies and pushing new ones, the influence of the new Prime Minister on championing transparency or supporting secrecy and the openness of the Brexit process itself, which so far has seen a struggle between the executive’s secretive prerogative powers and the legislature’s rights to know.

This 40-minute presentation will be followed by a discussion with the participants.
