Pre-summit Briefing 2018/4

28-29 June: Migration Policy, Security and Defence, Economic Policy, the Future of the Euro and Brexit

The heads of state or government will as so often nowadays meet in three formats. The first and longest session, on the afternoon and evening of 28 June, will be a meeting of the European Council as such, with Mrs May present. The second, on the morning of 29 June, will be a breakfast session of the European Council in article 50 formation, at which EU27 will review the current situation regarding Brexit. Later on the morning of 29 June, there will be a Euro Summit in ‘inclusive formation’, involving the 19 Euro Area leaders and all their non-Euro Area colleagues except the British prime minister. The European Council and the Euro Summit could, and almost certainly will be lively, but the Brexit breakfast is likely to be brief and may even be rather boring.
