Brexit and the future of European integration

Regardless of the precise terms of the UK’s exit from the EU, Brexit will have important implications—challenges and opportunities—for the future of economic, financial, and political integration under taken by the remaining EU members.  Will Brexit produce centripetal or centrifugal forces that promote faster, deeper EU integration or lead to the opposite result? What lessons/reforms will, or should, be adopted by the EU in response to Brexit? This seminar explores Brexit’s implications for the EU’s future from a European perspective (Francisco Torres) and a trans-Atlantic viewpoint (Russell Kincaid).
