What's the talk about?

 Following the UK's vote to leave the European Union, Theresa May has stated that "Brexit means Brexit" and the government “will invoke Article 50 no later than the end of March 2017" in order to start the formal process of leaving.  However, many questions remain unanswered.  Who voted for Brexit and why?  What will the Brexit process look like?  Will the EU give the UK a good deal?  Will the UK end up with 'hard Brexit' or 'soft Brexit'?  This talk by Dr Anil Awesti examines the social, economic and political reasons for the 'Leave' vote, the politics of the Brexit process and the potential options for the UK's future relationship with the EU.  In discussing these issues, we will relate to the broader question of the UK's role in contemporary international relations.

Dr Anil Awesti lectures in European Politics at the University of Warwick.  He has researched and published in the fields of EU governance, the history of the EU and Britain and the EU.
