Join us for our next Great Decisions 2021 session
a chance to listen/learn/comment/question
on the U.S. roles in international relations
On Tuesday, March 9th, at 11:45 a.m. our third discussion using Zoom will be “Brexit and the European Union.” Moderator Dr. Paul DeBell will present background materials and a film by the Foreign Policy Association, and lead participants in a discussion of the issues. We plan to finish the discussion at 1:15 p.m., but it may go a bit longer if warranted by questions and follow-up.
With the “Brexit transition period” coming to an end this year, the United Kingdom will formally leave the European Union at the start of 2021. With negotiations between the two entities continuing to stall, what does the future of Europe and the UK look like? Will the UK survive a possible Scottish vote to leave? Who will step up and take command of Europe now that Angela Merkel is out of the spotlight?
