Brexit – UK, European Union and Referendum and Article 50 Speakers

Brexit, Britain and the EU. In the referendum of June 23 2016 voters in the United Kingdom made a historic decision to leave the European Union by a margin of fifty-two to forty-eight percent. Prime Minister Theresa May has declared that Article 50, the declaration that begins the process of withdrawal from the European Union is due to be triggered by March 2017. Speakers on the implications and consequences of British withdrawal include writers and specialists on the political, business, financial, economic, banking, trade, legal, and social implications of this momentous event.
