On June 23, 2016, contrary to expectations, the European Union membership referendum in the United Kingdom resulted in a majority for “leave”.

This decision will trigger a host of controversial implications of a political, legal, and economic nature. How and when would the UK actually leave the EU, and what would its future relationship with Europe look like? What will be the fate of EU citizens living in the UK, and of Britons living in the EU? What does “Brexit” mean for the position of the EU and UK in the world, and for the future of the United Kingdom?

This event will feature a panel of experts from LUC and Leiden Law School to shed some light on these questions and debate the consequences of “Brexit” with the LUC community.

 

The panel will consist of:

·         Daniel Carter, PhD candidate at Leiden Law School

·         Dr. Darinka Piqani, Assistant Professor of EU Law at Leiden Law School and LUC

·         Dr. Joris Larik, Assistant Professor of Comparative, EU and International Law at LUC

·         Dr. Beatrix Futák-Campbell, Assistant Professor of International Relations at LUC

Each panelist will give a brief input statement on a different aspect of “Brexit”, followed by questions and general discussion. The event will be followed by drinks at LUC’s student-run Coaster's bar. You can register for the event here.
