“The Morning after the Vote: First Reactions to Britain’s EU Referendum”

18 Jun

As we approach the week of the British European Union (EU) referendum, the rest of Europe is also thinking and preparing for the outcomes and effects of the #brexit vote.

The German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) hosts The Morning after the Vote: First Reactions to Britain’s EU Referendum. Held Friday, June 24, 2016, 8:30–10:00 am at the DGAP, Berlin, the panel will analyse the referendums results from a few different angles: What does the British vote mean for how citizens across EU member states will view further European integration? How do EU leaders respond to the British decision? What specific consequences can we expect in finance and the economy as well as in foreign and security policies? And what are the British government’s next steps in light of the results?

Dr. Jana Puglierin, Head of the DGAP’s Alfred von Oppenheim Center for European Policy Studies, will chair the discussion and panelists include; Elmar Brok, MEP Chairman, EP Committee on Foreign Affairs, David Charter Berlin Correspondent, The Times, Nicolai von Ondarza Deputy Head of Research Division EU/Europe, German Institute for International and Security Affairs, Brigadier Rob J. Rider CBE Defence Attaché, British Embassy.

The referendum on European Union membership marks a decisive moment for the United Kingdom, even before touching on the question of whether the final vote is to Remain or to Leave; this vote has an impact on both the UK’s domestic politics and on the shape of today’s EU.
