Global Challenges

A series of lectures on current issues in world politics - every first Wednesday of the month

In this lecture we will try to place the vote for a Brexit in its historical context. It will explore the historic relationship between Great Britain and Europe, and deal with the ambivalent attempts to join the growing move to European integration during the twentieth century, leading eventually to Britain joining the EU in 1973. The issues and historical explanations behind this ambivalence will then be treated in order to explain the Brexit vote and its causes. It will end with an attempt to discuss the implications of a Brexit for the relationship between GB and Europe.
