Invitation to the Institute Colloquium with Roundtable Discussion

Layers of Brexit

Two years after the referendum: Which traces has Brexit left on Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, the EU and the World?

On 23rd June 2016, the British people shocked the EU and the wider world by voting for their country's exit from the EU. However, two years after the referendum, it has become apparent that this vote is wrought with complications and constituted a leap in the dark, not only for the UK, but also for the EU and its member states as well as the EU's external partners. Brexit will have important repercussions in a plethora of policy areas and on different levels. What plans does the UK have for the time after its exit from the EU? What effects will Brexit have on Germany in general and Rhineland-Palatinate in particular? How has the British intention to leave the EU affected Brussels and how has it changed the way that the wider world sees the EU?
