ELIA's concern on a "no-deal" scenario

31 January 2019

ELIA and its members share concerns about the future of international collaborations between higher education institutions in the arts, their staff and students; given the increased risk that the United Kingdom may leave the EU on 30 March this year without a deal (a "no-deal" scenario). The European Commission has adopted a final set of contingency proposals in the area of the Erasmus+ programme, social security coordination and the EU budget.
Despite the intention of the Erasmus+ programme to find a possible solution for the 14.000 young people that might be affected by the "no-deal" scenario, the prospect for students and academics in a "no-deal" scenario is raising lots of concerns both inside the United Kingdom and in the 27 EU countries.
ELIA's mission is to create a globally connected platform for professional exchange and development in higher arts education. Therefore, we strongly encourage all parties involved in the Brexit political debate to strive for a solution-oriented towards facilitating broad international dialogue between students and academics.

We believe that encouraging cultural diversity and academic exchange is the key to enhancing higher education and consequently, our society.
