BREXIT: a real life train wreck in slow motion?

14 Sep 2017 3:00 PM - 4:00 PMQA 5

In this seminar, Dr Andy Mycock, Reader in Politics at the University of Huddersfield, UK, examines the aftermath of the UK vote to leave the European Union.

In 2016 the population of the UK voted narrowly in a referendum in favour of exiting the EU after 43 years at the end of an ill-tempered campaign characterised by claims which were at best highly dubious. Andy will assess the campaign, the impact of the result and the likely impact going forward. Whilst negotiations for the Brexit have begun, they are fraught with controversy. Moving forwards, the UK Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson recently visited both NZ and Australia as the UK seeks to position itself in a post EU world. This again is something Andy will seek to shed light on.

Massey’s Associate Professor Grant Duncan will act as a discussant to Andy’s thought provoking presentation, providing a commentary on how the Commonwealth view Brexit and future relations with the UK.
