 Brexit: Deal or No Deal?

Brexit: Deal or No Deal?

Description

More than three years have passed since the UK voted to leave the European Union in a non-binding referendum. Ever since, the country has spiralled into a state of political turmoil over the terms of Brexit, and two Prime Ministers have lost their jobs in the process.

Theresa May will be officially replaced as Conservative Party Leader and Prime Minister on July 22nd. With eight initial contenders already knocked out, only high-profile Brexiteer Boris Johnson and Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt remain as candidates for Britain’s top-job.

Johnson insists that under his leadership, Britain will leave the EU on October 31st, with or without an exit deal. Hunt takes a more measured stance and has not ruled out seeking an extension to the Brexit deadline, warning that 'catastrophe awaits' if the 'wrong person' is selected for the new leadership.

How will the new Prime Minister deal with competing expectations surrounding the country’s future? What would a 'no-deal' Brexit mean for the UK, the EU and Australia?

In addition to providing his insights into the ongoing Brexit negotiations and the Conservative Party’s new leadership, Dr Ben Wellings will launch his new book English Nationalism, Brexit and the Anglosphere (Manchester University Press, May 2019), with copies available for sale and for signing.

Dr Ben Wellings is Senior Lecturer in Politics and International Relations. He is an expert on Brexit and the politics of nationalism and Euroscepticism in contemporary Europe.
