The United Kingdom's June referendum vote to leave the European Union took most observers by surprise, including many of Brexit's proponents. The UK government still has no plan or timetable for leaving the EU, but it is already clear that Brexit--whatever form it takes--will have momentous consequences for the future of Britain and the European Union. On September 27th, from 4:00 to 5:30pm, European Union experts Kathleen R. McNamara (Georgetown University Professor of Government and Foreign Service) and R. Daniel Kelemen (Rutgers University Professor of Political Science and Director of the Center for European Studies) will discuss the causes and consequences of the Brexit vote in a roundtable moderated by Seth Koven (Rutgers University Professor of History and Director of Rutgers British Studies Center). Refreshments will be served. The event is sponsored by the Rutgers British Studies Center, the Rutgers Center for European Studies, and the Centers for Global Advancement and International Affairs and is open to all.
