The recently-held British referendum on whether or not the United Kingdom should leave the European Union has generated much discussion worldwide. While the country’s response to Brexit has been confirmed, much remains unknown—including the implications of said Brexit for the greater EU and, more specifically, for Canadian foreign policy. Please join the Canadian Centre for the Responsibility to Protect and Massey College for a free panel discussion on Brexit on Thursday, September 29 from 12-2PM in the Campbell Conference Facility of the Munk School. Speakers include Mel Cappe, Randall Hansen, and the Honourable Hugh Segal.
This event is co-hosted by Massey College and co-sponsored by the Munk School of Global Affairs; the Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History; Massey College; the Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies at the Munk School; the Canadian Studies program at University College; and the International Relations Society.
Light refreshments and a pizza lunch will be served. Space is limited, so please register online by clicking on the link below.
