This evening provides an opportunity for anybody who is confused about Brexit and its latest developments to put their questions to a panel of experts on the complex issue.

The event organised by the European Union Society at the University of Edinburgh, hopes to shed some light with an expert panel of various backgrounds as they aim to bring some clarity, one week before the UK Parliament votes on the provisional deal. Their intention is to consider the state of Brexit in general and where are the politics headed at such a crucial time…

The President Emeritus of the European Union Society, Anthony Salamone,  who is also a member of the panel said,

“I think Brexit is confusing, even for people who follow European politics, British politics and Scottish politics. It can sometimes be difficult to keep pace with the developments and I hope the members of the audience will bring their questions and get some analysis and some insight into all the noise that’s going on around us.”

The President of the European Union Society, Robert Jacek Wlodarski, who will be chairing the discussion said,

“I want to cover a wide range of topics as possible. The last time we talked about Brexit with the Economic Society, many speakers were talking about theories, about philosophies and the EU – what they liked what they didn’t like – and we ended up with a fascinating debate but very little practical meaning to it.”

The event takes place at the Playfair Library, Old College, University of Edinburgh at 1800-1930 hrs.
