CIC Saskatoon: The Brexit, the EU and Trade – Oh, My! – a panel discussion

September 22, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm EDT


The results of Britain’s June 23 vote to leave the European Union has set conventional wisdom on its ear, and has prompted a lot of serious questions. What brought the United Kingdom to such a point? How does this change the dynamics between Britain and the continent? How does this change continental political/economic dynamics? And how does this help or hurt Canada?

In the interest of answering your questions, CIC-Saskatoon and the Department of Political Studies brings together four experts in international relations, each with experience in Britain and the Continent. Watch as each provides some of the fundamentals to these questions – and then take part in the conversations as they dig deeper into the issues.
