Brexit and British Politics
- Thursday 19 April 2018 (15:00-16:30)
Speaker: Anand Menon (KCL and UK in a Changing Europe)
Chair: Tim Haughton (POLSIS)
Brexit has changed everything – from our government, to our economy and principal trading relationship, to the organization of our state. The 2016 referendum was a watershed moment which is already transforming British politics in profound and lasting ways. In this seminar Professor Menon draws on his recently published book to examine both the causes and consequences of the Brexit decision, in particular charting the problems and challenges that lie ahead for the United Kingdom.
Special POLSIS Departmental and Student Enhancement Seminar. All welcome. No registration required.
