Brexit: the decision by the United Kingdom to leave the European Union which has shocked people not only in the United Kingdom and Europe, but throughout the world.

Already the decision in the British referendum has added instability in global markets, and has generated profound uncertainty about the future relations amongst Britain, Europe and Australia. Questions have been raised as to how worried Australians should be about the consequences; whether or not the decision will affect Australia’s economic and social relations with the UK and Europe; and the kinds of opportunities that may arise as a consequence of the decision being implemented.

The seminar, hosted by RMIT’s European Union Centre and the Contemporary European Studies Association of Australia (CESAA), will explore these questions and others with a panel lead by CESSA’s President, Associate Professor Bruno Masciltelli. Other panellists include Oliver Jankowsky, President of European Business, Professor Joseph Siracusa, School of Global, Urban and Social Studies, RMIT and Ian Howie, formerly United Nations, and now Adjunct, School of Global, Urban and Social Studies, RMIT.

A light lunch will be provided; for catering purposes, if you wish to attend, please register here.
