Brexit in Historical Perspective


WHEN September 30, 2019
6:30-8 PM WHERE NYUAD Campus, Conference Center WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

It is more than three years since the British people voted to leave the European Union (EU), which it is set to do on October 31. If it does so without a deal then this will have serious economic and political repercussions throughout Europe, but especially in Britain. How did we get here? This talk explores how the separate but interwoven histories of Britain, Ireland, and the rest of Europe have led us to the current crisis.
