Brexit: What Now for the UK and EU?
On 23 June Britain voted to leave the EU. The vote has triggered a series of political crises, from a leadership vacuum in the Conservative party and challenges in the Labour party to a possible second referendum in Scotland. The result has also exposed deep dividing lines between parts of the United Kingdom and across British society. So what next for the UK and EU?
Staff from the Birkbeck Department of Politics will debate the consequences of Brexit:
• Is this the end of a ‘United’ Kingdom?
• Has British politics changed forever?
• When and how will article 50 be triggered?
• What is the future of the EU without the UK?
Join us for drinks and discussion as we consider these and other questions.
Panellists: Dr David Styan; Dr Dermot Hodson; Dr Jason Edwards; Professor Eric Kaufmann; Jessica Smith
