What has Brexit really meant for you?

The University of Kent will be hosting a virtual expert panellist debate via Zoom on the first 100 days of Brexit on 12 April at 6:30pm.

After many months of negotiations, the United Kingdom and the European Union finally agreed a deal. The UK left the EU on 31st December 2020, but what does this mean for the future? Our expert panel will explore how Brexit has impacted the UK in the last 100 days.

The panel will be chaired by the University’s Chancellor Gavin Esler and will include Sasha Langeveldt, Alumna and Former Kent Union President; Neva Sadikoglu-Novaky, alumna; Professor Jeremy Carrette, Dean for Europe; Dr Miriam Sorace, Lecturer in Quantitative Politics; and Professor Richard Whitman, Professor of Politics and International Relations.

The panel will discuss questions such as: ‘Does leaving the European Union change what it means to be ‘British’?, ‘What has Brexit really meant for you?’ and ‘Can the UK and the EU ever have a relationship built on trust’?

This is Kent’s second virtual event in the series of ‘Dare to Ask’, a topical panel debate series, which aims to spark imagination and debate and connect audiences with experts from across the disciplines and the world.

The debate will begin at 18.30 via Zoom. Please ensure you register on Zoom so you can receive your link to access the event.
