Biography: 

I joined the Wales Governance Centre in October 2016 to undertake research into Brexit and UK devolved politics. Building on my background in EU politics and governance, I am now addressing questions surrounding the UK's withdrawal from the EU, and the implications this will have for the politics and governance of the UK and the devolved nations.

In particular, I am interested in the following: the differential implications of the UK's withdrawal from the EU across the different nations of the UK (with particular attention to Wales); intra-UK governance both during the Brexit process and post-Brexit; Wales as a distinct actor within the EU, before, during and post-Brexit; as well as remaining attentive to 'the other side of the negotiating table', including the changing nature of the EU.

    Richard Parry assesses the unfolding drama at Westminster around no-deal scenarios. The deal ‘would be an uncomfortable outcome for the EU: providing quota-fee, tariff-free access to the EU market without any accompanying financial obligations; without any access to UK fishing waters in the absence of further agreement; and without any commitments to align with the majority of so-called level playing field arrangements’. For Tory leavers, what’s not to like in this negotiating triumph for Theresa May?
