Professor Daire Keogh, president of DCU, said the new partnership is “a tangible reflection of the international character of the Institute and its contribution, through engagement and scholarship, to the analysis of post-Brexit Europe”.
Professor Federico Fabbrini, professor of European law and founding director of the Brexit Institute, added: “The multi-annual partnership with GSK Stockmann, which builds on prior opportunities of cooperation and a solid relations of trust, is a confirmation of the growing role played by the Brexit Institute as a European hub for research and policy on EU affairs post-Brexit.”

Dr Marcus Peter, also a partner in Luxembourg, added: “Situated in the centre of Europe, GSK Stockmann in Luxembourg is ideally positioned to support the activities of the Brexit Institute. The partnership will provide deeper insights in relation to the future of the European Union.”
