The Elephant in the Room: The Free Movement of Services and Brexit

In the Brexit debate, there has been relatively little focus on the issue of services, which make up about three quarters of the UK’s economic output. How might Brexit impact on this vitally important, and growing, sector? This IIEA paper, by Gavin Barrett, Professor of Law at the Sutherland School of Law, University College Dublin, aims to address this question, and to focus attention on an issue that is, and will continue to be, of key importance in the years and decades after Brexit has taken place.

Brexit and the Distribution Sector

In much of the analysis to date of the effects of Brexit on economies, far more attention has been paid to the effect on exports than on imports. While it is true that the UK is an important market for Irish goods, the UK is also an even more important supplier of imported goods. Any changes resulting from Brexit, which impose tariffs on imports from the UK, will be damaging for the Irish economy. Even more serious may be the impact of non-tariff barriers, which interfere with this vital channel of inputs for the Irish economy.In this new IIEA paper, the third in the Brexit Sectoral Report series, Professor John FitzGerald, TCD, and Professor Edgar Morgenroth, consider the impact of Brexit on imports of materials to be used as an input in Irish business, as well as its impact on imports of consumer goods.
