ILR Brown Bag Lunch Presentation: László Andor: Brexit, Free Movement and European Unity

Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

281 Ives Faculty Building, Doherty Lounge

Although Leave had a narrow win over Remain at the UK referendum in 2016, British membership in the European Union has always been special. This lecture explores the key factors that drove British public opinion apart from the continent, and what possible outcomes might exist. From the point of view of economics Brexit, by definition, is a lose-lose game, but it also provides opportunities for the remaining 27 members to deepen integration in areas where historically the UK has been the most reluctant member. Post-Brexit European integration will reconfirm the central role of the Single Market (with free movement at its heart), reinforce the Monetary Union, and may offer new frameworks for close cooperation with the UK in areas like science and defence.
