The Brexit Battle: What It Means for Europe and America
In 2016 British citizens voted narrowly to leave the European Union. Since then their government has struggled to implement that mandate, finding it very difficult to reach acceptable terms to leave the EU. Craig Parsons will consider how we explain the Brexit vote, why it has proved so hard for the UK to leave, and some implications about political tensions and possibilities today in both Europe and the United States.
