Brexit ne­go­ti­a­tions

ArabAd - - FORECAST -

“The Brexit talks could be­come a drawnout process if ei­ther party is un­will­ing to com­pro­mise. If af­ter one and a half years they haven’t agreed any­thing, there will be a sense of ur­gency, with peo­ple pan­ick­ing and do­ing deals that quickly un­ravel. The con­cern for me is that the ne­go­ti­a­tions be­come far­ci­cal. The best out­come for both par­ties is to have a clear idea of what they want be­fore hold­ing talks, to en­sure a clean break. The UK’S best hope is that the EU has a strong set of ne­go­tia­tors with a clearly ar­tic­u­lated po­si­tion so the UK can strike a deal with them quickly. On both sides peo­ple will need to con­sciously not let any per­sonal in­sults that were hurled be­fore the Brexit vote to get in the way now. But that’s eas­ier said than done: many sen­si­ble, bright peo­ple from the EU who live in the UK feel a sense of re­jec­tion, which is hard to get past. This wasn’t a pos­i­tive vote to af­firm the UK’S in­de­pen­dence in the world – it was a re­jec­tion of what the EU stands for. The ques­tion is: can the EU rep­re­sen­ta­tives get past that and move for­ward?” – Madan Pil­lutla, Pro­fes­sor of Or­gan­i­sa­tional Be­hav­iour
