The Centre for International Security Studies presents Professor Kalypso Nicolaidis from Oxford University in a public lecture about three meanings of Brexit - exodus, reckoning and sacrifice.
As the UK’s scheduled departure from the EU looms, there are still many questions about whether the deed will actually happen. This talk will investigate how archetypal myths can
help us renew democratic conversations, whether British exceptionalism is actually exceptional, the meaning of a promise, and the price of hubris.
Speaking as part of the CISS Global Forum, Professor Nicolaidis will be joined by Professor Simon Tormey to discuss the big questions about Brexit. Will the UK get lost in transition? What will be the role of the UK as a former member state of the EU? And what will Brexit mean for the UK’s relations with Commonwealth countries?
