Reminder: Shoreline CC to present Nov. 17 program on Great Britain and European Union

brexitThe Global Affairs Center at Shoreline Community College, directed by Edmonds resident Larry Fuell, will present a free program “Great Britain and the European Union: Brexit time?”  on Thursday, Nov. 17, from 7-8:30 p.m. in Room 9208

The speakers will be Robin Twyman, Consul (Business and Government Affairs), United Kingdom, Seattle Office, and Phillip Shekleton, Lecturer, Foster School of Business, University of Washington.

The historic vote that took place on June 23 in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to leave the European Union (“Brexit”) has generated uncertainty about Great Britain’s future, that of Europe, and about the post-1945 global order. Does this historic referendum signal that Britain has chosen to retreat into a “Little England” status, or does it signal a desire to redefine its role on the world stage?

Expect a lively discussion of developments in Great Britain, and their implications for European unity and the “special relationship” between Great Britain and the U.S.
