On June 23, 2016 a slim majority of the people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union by national referendum. The reasons that led to this historic vote, ending forty-three years of UK membership in the EU, are still being widely debated, as are the potential ramifications. This two-day event brings together journalists and scholars from European and American universities to discuss both the underlying issues that precipitated the UK’s decision to separate from the EU as well as the ongoing fallout from the “Brexit” vote, especially for those of us working in global universities.

Organizing Committee: Emily Bloom, François Carrel-Billiard, Eileen Gillooly, Victoria Rosner, Nicole Shea, and Loren Wolfe

Co-Sponsors: At Columbia, the School of General Studies, Society of Fellows and Heyman Center for the Humanities, European Institute, British Studies, Modern British History University Seminar; Columbia Global Centers–Paris, and the Council for European Studies; The Transatlantic Academy (Washington, DC) and Getting to Know Europe Program (Delegation of the European Union to the United States)
