Description

Future Directions for the EU post-Brexit

Baroness Kishwer Falkner of Margravine
Member, House of Lords
Visiting Professor, King’s College, London, UK
Distinguished Fellow, Munk School of Global Affairs

The act of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union has thrown the internal constitution of the UK into disarray. The balance between the executive and parliament when in a form of coalition government is always difficult but the balance of powers between the two houses of parliament has also ruptured, with consequences for the future. Baroness Falkner joins us at the Munk School, to discuss future directions for the EU post-Brexit, as part of our Distinguished Lecture Series.
