The week ahead

Introduction by Anthony Salamone (The University of Edinburgh) on how the course will explore the impact of the EU referendum on the UK and on the EU.
Hello and welcome to Week 3 of our course: Towards Brexit? The UK’s EU Referendum. I’m Anthony Salamone from the University of Edinburgh. The results are in and the United Kingdom has voted to leave the European Union. In the final week of the course, we will analyse this historic decision. We’ll look at the details of the result and the process for withdrawal from the EU. We’ll also consider the impact of the referendum on the UK and on the EU. Remember that you can take part in our Referendum Round-up later in the week. You can also find more analysis in the weeks ahead from European Futures and the Centre on Constitutional Change.
On behalf of the team from the University of Edinburgh, thank you for taking part in our course. Enjoy the week.
