Abstract

The UK leaves the EU just as the bloc is debating the future shape of its largest spending policy, the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), in the context of negotiating its future budget spending and priorities as part of its Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for the period 2021-2027. As Alan Matthews (Trinity College Dublin) and Christilla Roederer-Rynning (University of Southern Denmark) argue, Brexit has complicated these negotiations because it has sharpened the redistributive conflict between net contributors and net recipients and created uncertainty over future trade flows and market conditions. Ironically, if the UK does successfully implement its new farm policy paradigm of public money for public goods after Brexit, this could be a more powerful influence on future CAP reform than the UK could have hoped to exercise by remaining a member.
