Timothy Oliver will discuss the effects of the Brexit vote in a lecture from 2:30-4 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 15, in 223 Gore Hall on the University of Delaware’s Newark campus.
Oliver, who is Dahrendorf Fellow at the London School of Economics IDEAS foreign-policy think tank and a visiting scholar at New York University, will speak on "Brexit: A Crisis for Europe or Britain?"
The talk, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by UD’s European Studies Program and the Department of Political Science and International Relations.
As has become apparent since June 23, when British voters chose to leave the European Union, the exit process commonly known as Brexit is not going to be easy to define, implement or conclude, Oliver says. He will examine it from the United Kingdom’s and others’ perspectives.
Oliver describes Brexit as a series of 13 interconnected negotiations, debates and votes that are potentially open-ended and that could change the EU and the whole of Europe.
His talk will examine such questions as: How will the EU handle the challenge of Brexit? What new relationship will it seek with the departing UK? How might Brexit change European geopolitics? What might it mean for the study of European integration and ideas of how integration takes place?
