Don’t miss this opportunity to hear former senior civil servant and Permanent Representative of the United Kingdom to the European Union 2013-2017 Ivan Rogers discuss his new full length essay 9 Lessons in Brexit, an urgent treatise that tells us what the UK needs to learn – and fast.

“Remember the words of Ivan Rogers the next time you hear some plausible posh boy in a suit telling you `no deal’ wouldn’t hurt at all and might even be a jolly good thing.”

J.K. Rowling

Two and a half years after Britain voted to leave the European Union, the political debate over Brexit seems as intense and as complicated as ever. Who and what can we trust? And how on earth do we make sense of it all? Ivan Rogers, the UK’s former ambassador to the EU, is uniquely placed to tell some home truths about the failure of the British political class and the flaws, dishonesty and confusion inherent in the UK’s approach to Brexit so far.

In this short, elegant essay, Rogers draws up nine lessons that we, as a soon-to-be `third country’, need to learn from the last few years, if the next few years – indeed the next decade – are not to be even more painful.


Ivan Rogers is a former British civil servant, with a long career of serving governments of all colours. From 2013 to 2017, he was the UK’s Permanent Representative to the EU. In this position, he was the UK’s most senior negotiator with other Member States and the European institutions.
