Career[edit]

Peers is the author of EU Justice and Home Affairs Law, which was reviewed by Dr Colin Harvey of Queen's University Belfast in the Oxford Journal of Legal Studies in 2003 and Professor Friedemann Kainer of the University of Mannheim in Integration in 2007.[2][3] He also authored The Brexit: The Legal Framework for Withdrawal from the EU or Renegotiation of EU Membership.

Peers has advised the British government on EU policy.[7] In October 2016, he argued that banning foreign-born academics like Sara Hagemann from serving as advisors to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on Brexit would "come across as hostile, narrow and xenophobic."[7] He tweeted, "What kind of know-nothing nativist govt rejects the expertise of all non-citizens?".[7]
