  Add to Calendar 2018-03-01 14:30 2018-03-02 11:30 Europe/Paris Picking up after Brexit: Explaining and assessing the British exit from the European Union

In this workshop, the organisers aim to explain the rationale behind Brexit from different perspectives and explain how the European Union’s (EU’s) relationship with the United Kingdom (UK) as well as the rest of the world is likely to be affected. They will focus on the two most sensitive areas in which the exclusion of the UK might have serious implications on EU power projection capabilities: international trade and security. Questions they intent to examine are as follows: After Brexit, how will the EU security and defense policy proceed? Will the EU focus more or less on civilian (instead of military) conflict resolution techniques? How will EU defense industrial cooperation advance? Will Brexit affect the EU’s normative power? Can we explain the result of the Brexit referendum with insights from the political economy? How will the EU shape its future trade policy vis-à-vis the UK? Under which conditions can both partners continue to have a preferential trade relationship?

Organisers: Marina Henke (MWP-SPS), Robin Markwica (MWP-RSC) and Aydin Yildirim (MWP-RSC)
