Brexit: Where it Stands, What it Means
Dickinson College will host a panel of experts to discuss the current state of Brexit, the British effort to leave the European Union. The talk will take place Wednesday, Oct. 2, at 7 p.m. in the Anita Tuvin Schlechter (ATS) Auditorium.
Panelists will discuss issues surrounding Brexit, including a so-called “no deal” exit from the EU; the border between Ireland, an EU state, and Northern Ireland, part of the United Kingdom; and the possible impact of Brexit on the British and world economies. They also will talk about the political crisis in the U.K. involving Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his efforts to deliver a Brexit deal after three failed attempts by his predecessor, Theresa May. The deadline for a Brexit decision is Oct. 31.
