Dialogue 2019

Europe and Brexit - Back to the Future? This is the question our panel discussion will deal with on November 20th at IUBH. Our Dialogue partners from fields such as economics, education and politics will argue together with the audience, ‘What is Europe?’ ‘What impact does Brexit have on Europe?’ and ‘What will the situation look like after Great Britain actually leaves the EU?’.

"Brexit was a fantastic example of a nation shooting itself full in the face.”

- Hugh Grant

Europe and Great Britain have been in discussions since 2017 and after long negotiations, they settled on a date for Great Britain to leave the European Union. But will it be a hard Brexit, or will they come to an agreement? The biggest fear for the UK is that the slowing of economic growth might cause many banks and companies to move their headquarters out if the country.

“Brexit has really broken a taboo. The Brits have shown us that you can leave the European Union, and you can come out better.”

- Marine Le Pen

Brexit also strengthened other anti-immigration parties in the EU that could force an anti-EU vote in other countries such as Germany or France. This would cause the EU to lose two of their biggest economies.

Brexit is a symptom of disruption in Europe – European solidarity or „us first“?

For a country as focused on export as Germany, the Brexit is without question a setback. While the EU is negotiating extensive trade agreements with as many countries around the world as possible to boost mutual prosperity, there is the risk of further alienation of the United Kingdom in case of Brexit. This should be countered with all available means.
