Possible questions

  • How much involvement and influence does the Welsh Government have at present while treaties are negotiated and ratified?
  • To what extent is the National Assembly for Wales able to scrutinise the actions of the Welsh Government in its engagement with the UK Government on international agreements? What works well and what requires improvement?
  • How should the devolved governments be involved in treaty-making after Brexit, and at what points during the process?
  • Are there features of the way other countries involve sub-state actors in treaty making which you think should be considered in the UK?
