The United Kingdom after the Brexit – Challenges and Perspectives

Panel discussion examines the challenges of Brexit for the United Kingdom and the EU with regard to domestic and foreign policy on February 6, 2018

Since the vote of a narrow majority of the British public in favor of leaving the European Union in the referendum on June 23rd, 2016, and the official letter of resignation on March 29th, 2017, the UK and the EU have entered the unexplored area of disintegration. The UK will leave the EU as the third largest member state and one of the most dynamic economies in Europe.

In the framework of the panel discussion on February 6, 2018, UK experts Prof. David Held from the School of Government and International Affairs (SGIA) at Durham University, Henning Meyer from the London School of Economics (LSE), and Prof. Klaus Stolz from the Institute of English and American Studies at Chemnitz University, analyze the domestic and foreign policy challenges emerging from Brexit. The discussion will focus on the causes for the Brexit decision, the subsequent conduct of negotiations, and future perspectives on the relations between the UK and the EU.

The experts are available for questions from the audience after the main part of the discussion has been concluded. The panel discussion is chaired by PD Dr. Christian Schweiger from the Professorship for Comparative European Governance Systems at Chemnitz University of Technology.

The discussion takes place in the auditorium building Reichenhainer Straße 90, room N013, between 5.15 p.m. and 6.45 p.m. No prior registration necessary.
