In the last decades, Great Britain has attracted many of the most talented people from all over the world.  The high level of quality of its educational system enabled those people to cultivate, develop and grow their talent.  They then joined the labour market and offered their expertise and high skills to industries such as manufacturing and services and even education.  In the LSE for example, 70% of the students come from abroad.  This multicultural diversity is also evident in the...

Brexit is all but an easy issue, the magnitude of this process is such that two years seem to be insufficient for a divorce. The clock is now ticking and a deal should be agreed for the benefit of both, the UK and the EU. There is a tremendous range of fields for which a deal should be concluded, but first and foremost, a trade deal seems to be a logical starting point. Britain's economy is significantly dependant on the EU, and so is the EU on the UK, in 2016 the UK's exports to the Union...

Apparently Liam Fox is open to ignore food and animal welfare standards so that he can get his "very big, very powerful" trade deal with Trump.

The recent meeting between Brexit advisors, ministers and businesses is a sign that this finally is taken seriously, and we can only hope close cooperation will continue during the negotiations.

Data is becoming increasingly important for companies to thrive. Not only are cross-border data flows essential for tech giants like Microsoft, Google and Facebook but new startups across Europe are finding innovative ways to use data to help medical treatments (e.g. Genomics PLC) or helping us build smarter, more efficient cities. The EU has strong protection for the processing of personal data, something that the ECJ has interpreted as incompatible with mass state surveillance. (C203-15...

Sadly yes.  As much as many don't agree with the idea of it we need to accept the fact that it has to happen. It would be a subversion of democracy for the government to not follow through on what the people voted for. While it may not be the best path forward for the country if governments choose when they have to listen to voters and when not to it can create a dangerous precedent for democracy in this country. The Brexit vote was not an election that elected a government to do what they...
