Now that the United Kingdom has officially left the European Union, the British government claims that they have gotten « Brexit done. » However, the real situation is far more complicated than that. The United Kingdom has entered a transition period without a clear goal for negotiations with the European Union, and trade talks with other countries such as Japan and the United States are complicated at best. This European Wednesday will be about British options outside the European Union and what the European Union can or should do to keep the relationship with the United Kingdom as deep as possible.
Come debate with us on Wed., Feb. 19 at 8 pm in Hamilton 607 as we resume our European Wednesdays debate series to discuss answers to these questions and more!
European Wednesdays are student-led weekly debates. No previous debate experience or political background is necessary. We encourage walk-ins, and we value the diversity of perspectives.
Co-organized by Columbia European Society and GEG Columbia (a chapter of Groupe d’Études Géopolitiques). European Wednesdays are part of the « Mardis du Grand Continent » global debate series.
