With daily developments and ongoing uncertainty, we all have questions on Brexit. "What impact has Brexit had on developments in the United Kingdom and the European Union? What impact will Brexit have on the European Union's political and economic order?"
For expert guidance through Brexit’s many complexities, we are delighted to welcome to the University of Leeds Anand Menon, Professor of European Politics and Affairs at Kings College London and Director of the UK in a Changing Europe.
