Teleconference: Brexit and the Future of the EU

The Turkish Heritage Organization hosted a recent teleconference discussion on “Brexit and the Future of the EU” with Distinguished Fellow of the Future Europe Initiative at the Atlantic Council Frances Burwell, and Former British Diplomat Sir Robert Cooper. 

The discussion begins with a question on what happened and let the nation to want to leave the European Union. 

Sir Robert Cooper discussed that it was a “series of accidents rather than a carefully thought out plan” and that there was a referendum because of problems that arose in the conservative party. Frances Burwell mentioned that some of the biggest factors to move forward with the idea of leaving the European Union stemmed from problems in the conservative party coupled with a struggle in a  party system that doesn’t quite fit the modern needs of the nation anymore. 

Sir Robert Copper and Frances Burwell went on to discuss the current steps of the Brexit votes, process, and the importance of it all moving forward. Additionally the two distinguished guests provided key insight into predictions of what to expect moving forward and how something as large as Brexit can impact the European communities and international communications moving forward.
