Topic Summary

“Britain, Brexit & the Future of Europe”

Last year's vote for Britain to leave the European Union, followed by a series of unexpected national elections, leave politics in Europe in a state of flux and the future overshadowed by question marks. This On Tap event examines the situation facing our closest allies and what may lie ahead.

European integration has focused on unifying Europe and making war obsolete on the European continent since shortly after WWII. What we now call the European Union, an organization of 28 member-states with deeply connected economic and political systems, has been successful in those respects yet many divisions remain. Economic challenges, terrorism, and a refugee crisis have highlighted the rifts that still exist and dangerously undermine the Union. The British decision to “Brexit” means an unprecedented step backward for integration and raises the specter of other countries following the British out the door. What will become of Europe?

Bio: Dr. Abshire teaches introductory courses in comparative politics & international relations as well as advanced courses on European politics, Asian politics, nationalism, comparative public policy, and occasional seminars on topics like globalization, genocide, and political grassroots movements.
