The Brexit Referendum – British Debates and European Perspectives

Roundtable Discussion

Two weeks before British citizens go to the polls, our third roundtable on the Brexit referendum took place. Our key questions concerned current British debates, the latest developments in British politics at the eve of the referendum, as well as British, German, and European perspectives on how to proceed after this – in any case – decisive moment for Europe.

We had the opportunity to hear first hand insights out of Britain from Roger Liddle (Member of the House of Lords and Co-Chair of Policy Network). This was followed by two responses from Jens Zimmermann (Member of the German Parliament and Vice Chair of the German-British Parliamentary Group) and Daniela Schwarzer (Head of Europe Programme, German Marshall Fund of the United States). To conclude our roundtable discussion, Philip Oltermann (Berlin Bureau Chief, The Guardian) provided an outlook.

The roundtable was jointly organised together with Policy Network.
