Brexit and Rights Engagement Network

The Brexit and Rights Engagement Network (BREN) is a network of early-career legal scholars working in the areas of rights, devolution and Brexit. The network – supported by a British Academy Rising Star Engagement Award and led by Europa Institute Co-Director Dr Tobias Lock – aims to provide younger scholars with opportunities to share the findings of their research with an audience outside the academy. Over the course of one year, BREN will organise three roundtables in Edinburgh, Belfast and London.
