Talk title: Brexit and the British Constitutional Crisis
Neither the agreement for withdrawal from the European Union so painstaking negotiated by Theresa May’s government nor any other plan for delivering on Brexit has been able to win majority support in the United Kingdom’s parliament. As a result, not only is Britain’s future relationship with the EU completely in doubt: so is the future of the British constitutional order. In this talk Scripps College Professor David Andrews will identify the United Kingdom’s remaining Brexit options, explain what should be done, and outline what is likely to happen instead.
