In June 2016, the majority of the British population voted in favour of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union. Since then, this decision has created enormous political waves within Great Britain – it has been in fact already termed as the biggest political crisis in the UK since World War II. It has also posed unprecedented challenges for the European Union – after years of enlargement. What will political and economic relations between Britain and the EU look like in the future and what are the implications for both sides? Will the EU remain at 27? And is there a danger of the UK falling apart? Among others, Mary Kaldor (Professor of Global Governance at the London School of Economics), Denis Staunton (London Editor of The Irish Times), Tessa Szyszkowitz (historian, journalist and author) and Tom Tugendhat (Member of the British Parliament) will discuss this issue. It is moderated by Ivan Vejvoda (political scientist and IWM Permanent Fellow).
