Globalization Challenges in an Uncertain World at Oxford University

On June 23, 2016, Britain voted to leave the European Union (EU). The road to eventual “Brexit” will be long and difficult, and the long-term consequences are unclear. In the near-term, however, British politics have been thrown into crisis. The governing Conservative party is in the midst of a leadership struggle, and the opposition Labour Party is imploding. The Scottish National Party is resurgent, and may soon press for another referendum on Scottish independence. Apart from the constitutional and political fallout of Brexit, the economic impact is already clear. The value of the pound sterling has plummeted and investment into the UK is likely to fall. Britain’s relationship with the EU and with the rest of the world is being fundamentally recast.

This course will examine developments in the UK in light of the referendum result, as well as what it means to be British in 2017; the options for Britain’s continued relationship with the EU; and Britain’s global role more broadly.
