AFLSE Philadelphia: Lecture on Brexit by LSE Dahrendorf Fellow Tim Oliver

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Brexit (But Were Afraid to Ask).


Britain’s vote to leave the European Union came as a shock to many in Europe and internationally and raised concerns that Britain is not only heading towards isolating itself from the rest of Europe but is also taking a more populist, inward-looking and mercantilist view towards international relations. Supporters of Brexit counter by arguing that in joining the EU, the UK ‘shackled itself to a corpse’ and that leaving will allow Britain and the EU to develop a more constructive relationship, while also allowing the UK to return to a globally orientated worldview, as opposed to a European-focused one. As Brexit unfolds, the realities facing Britain and Europe are becoming clearer. In this presentation, Dr. Tim Oliver, a noted writer on Brexit and British foreign policy, will discuss why Brexit happened, where relations between the UK and the EU might now be headed, what Brexit could mean for Europe, and whether concerns about Britain’s isolation and decline are justified.
