BREXIT Consequences and Challenges October 26, 2018

Conference Program

The United Kingdom is about to leave the European Union. This will potentially have grave consequences for the future of Europe. Economic as well as political gains achieved over six decades of European integration are at stake. The challenge is to find an exit framework preserving as much as possible of these gains and setting the stage for economic and political progress in post-Brexit Europe.
