🇱🇮 Christian Frommelt (Moderator)
Christian Frommelt from @LieInstitut is opening proceedings on the #InDivEU #Brexit panel at #PPCBerlin - tune in before you miss our great expert contributions!

@GermanyintheEU @parleu2020de @AuswaertigesAmt @EPinDeutschland @EUinDE @GermanyDiplo @EUCouncil @MercatorDE

"While the political declaration is not legally binding, it is the best basis to achieve agreement: it is disappointing to see the British government mover away from it"

Axel Dittmann (@GermanyonBrexit) breaks down the worries surrounding the #Brexit negotiations

"There is still work to do, and we hope that the current discussions can move in a productive direction: the EU speaks with one voice, personified in @MichelBarnier

Axel Dittmann (@GermanyonBrexit) from @GermanyDiplo describes the EU attitude towards #Brexit negotiations

"With the UK having left, there are a number of issues to look at: a hole in the budget for the MFF, foreign policy cooperation, and more"

There are certainly a number of challenges moving forward

- @GermanyonBrexit

"The UK government has had a bad #COVID19: it has impacted their strength among the public, and it is clear that they can't use it to mask the economic catastrophe of #BrexitShambles
- @BrigidLaffan at the #InDivEU #PPCBerlin panel

"The British government has no other ideology than Brexit, and with their current #COVID19 struggles, they now recognise the need for a deal, which they probably didn't until a few weeks ago"

@BrigidLaffan from @EuropeanUni & @RobSchuCentre

"The best thing for the EU in the UK in future is that it not appear in the British press"

@BrigidLaffan hints at an important cause behind #Brexit: the EU as a scapegoat in the British press

Frank Schimmelfennig is now expanding on the effects of #Brexit on questions of #DifferentiatedIntegration in Europe: "the UK was always against the 'ever closer union' message, and is now the biggest non-Member State in Europe: what will this mean for #InDivEU?"

"A 3-tier structure has developed in the EU: the core, then non-Euro states, then the 'Mavericks' like 🇩🇰&🇬🇧"

- Frank Schimmelfennig describes how #Brexit will remove the strongest "opt-out" country, which may shift things as far as #DifferentiatedIntegration is concerned

.@FundaTekin17 from @IEP_Berlin, who moderated our first panel today, will now contribute to the #InDivEU panel as a speaker, elaborating on #Brexit and external #differentiation

"If you look at the extent of #differentiation in the EU already, eventually we might get to a point where the borders of the EU end up rather diluted: #Brexit contributes to this by removing a key partner state from membership"

@FundaTekin17 gives a fascinating speech

"The more the EU differentiates, the thinner the dividing line gets, but we're nowhere close to 'semi-Membership' yet"

@FundaTekin17 expands on whether #Brexit could serve as a blueprint for future forms of #differentiation

Now that we've seen our speakers' main interventions, @vimeissner compiles a number of questions for our experts from the audience

"We will protect the integrity and functioning of the Single Market, which along with our common values is the EU's bedrock: our negotiating mandate will be maintained"

@GermanyonBrexit from @GermanyDiplo reassures that the EU will not compromise EU values in negotiations

Fascinating question from @Brendandonn from @FedTrust in the Q&A: will #COVID19 force hardcore #Brexiteers in the Tory party to lobby for intransigence in negotiations? Or will @BorisJohnson prioritise economic recovery by abandoning an economically disastrous #NoDeal?

.@IainBeggLSE is asking a live question at the #PPCBerlin #InDivEU panel!

"In negotiations, one side loses out: is the readiness to throw somebody under the bus the real political obstacle to getting a deal rather than the technical negotiations"

A great discussion!

After a captivating discussion on the #InDivEU panel at #PPCBerlin, Christian Frommelt from @LieInstitut closes proceedings

We'll return at 16:30 CET for three parallel roundtables on:

#Migration and #Asylum
Enlargement and Neighbourhood Policy
European #GreenDeal
