The workshop in brief:

The Faculty of Administrative Sciences and Economics/International Relations and Diplomacy has organized a workshop on Brexit: The United Kingdom Divided, to be held on January 7th, 2021. On June 23rd, 2016, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland held a referendum on its EU membership, commonly referred to as “the Brexit referendum”. The result of the referendum split the country almost in half with a win for the Brexit campaign of 51.8% of the vote, a mere 4% majority. It was soon discovered that nobody had really expected this outcome and that there was no plan for it. Subsequently, much detailed analysis took place. This will provide a high-level overview of the results of this analysis to reveal how Brexit divided a country along national, political, and generational lines, amongst others. Join us, on January the 7th to see just how Brexit divided the country known as “The United Kingdom”. The workshop was attended by 14 academics.
