Great Britain and the European Union

The historic vote that took place on June 23 in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to leave the European Union (“Brexit”) has generated uncertainty about Great Britain’s future, that of Europe, and about the post-1945 global order.
Does this historic referendum signal that Britain has chosen to retreat into a “Little England” status, or does it signal a desire to redefine its role on the world stage?
Join us for a lively discussion of developments in Great Britain, and their implications for European unity and the “special relationship” between Great Britain and the U.S.
