 London Thinks: The EU Referendum – What Happens Next?

Now that the result of the referendum for the UK’s membership of the EU is known, we need to see how change in the UK will take place.

There are still many questions left unanswered: How and when will this process happen? What are the long-term and short-term effects of Brexit? What will happen to the non-UK residents living here and the millions of UK nationals living outside the UK? How can the Leave campaign fulfil their promises on extremism, immigration and the NHS? Will they? What about Article 50? Is the second referendum which some Remainers are petitioning for a real possibility?

Join us at Conway Hall for a special event on the future of the United Kingdom.

Panelists include:

Matthew Goodwin – Professor of Politics and International Relations at the University of Kent. Author of Ukip: Inside the Campaign to Redraw British PoliticsRevolt on the Right: Explaining Support for the Radical Right in Britain and New British Fascism: Rise of the British National Party.
