The UK House of Lords EU External Affairs Sub-Committee is undertaking an inquiry into UK sanctions policy after Brexit. The inquiry will hear evidence in April and May, and among other things will explore the advantages and disadvantages of future co-operation between the UK and the EU on sanctions policy and how co-operation might take place, the current EU sanctions regime and how this will be transposed into UK law, and the impact of a separate UK sanctions regime on the UK’s ability to achieve its foreign policy goals. The UK Sub-Committee’s page giving information about the inquiry is here. If you would like to contribute to this inquiry, please contact Eva George, Clerk to the EU External Affairs Sub-Committee or firstname.lastname@example.org or + 44 20 7219 6099.
