Brexit: Now What?

“Brexit means Brexit,” says UK Prime Minister Theresa May. But what exactly does that mean? Can Britain renegotiate its way to economic integration with remaining EU nations, but chart its own paths in other areas, such as immigration? Will the other nations extract a pound of flesh from the UK for its betrayal? What is the fate of the 3 million EU citizens living in Britain and the 1.2 million Britons working elsewhere in the EU? More broadly, what does the “leave” vote presage for Europe. Will we see further fractioning on the continent-from other countries exiting the EU to Catalonians voting for independence? Is Vladimir Putin rubbing his hands in glee? Our panelists will venture answers to these and other questions, and you should bring some of your own, as well.
