Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract / Description of output

Depending on the terms of Brexit, the UK could be in the position to negotiate and agree free trade deals with third countries. It is helpful to understand what bilateral trade agreements look like. Especially in the practice of the European Union (EU) in recent years, these agreements have included rules that reach much beyond the liberalisation of trade in goods and services.
This briefing offers an introduction to the nature of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and breaks down the content of two recent agreements concluded by the EU with Canada and Japan.
