Brexit and the Commonwealth: Historical reflections

Speaker: Andrew Dilley

A probe into the past to highlight options for the UK in the future.

Since the UK voted to leave the EU, many look to the Commonwealth for alternative trading outlets. But is this a realistic option? This event puts this crucial question in historical perspective. It will look at Commonwealth trade down to Britain’s entry into the European Economic Community in 1973 and offer the audience a chance to probe the past and consider whether these old relationships offer a path to the future.

Admission is FREE, booking is required.

Hosted by: University of Aberdeen

Venue: New King’s 3, Kings College

Still Home Abroad After Brexit?

Still Home
07 November 2016, 19:00 – 21:00

Speaker: Karin Friederich

An insight into issues faced by EU citizens in the UK.

Integration of Poles into Scottish society has been a success story. EU citizens in Scotland received letters from their pro-EU MPs assuring them that their status in Scotland is safe after Brexit, yet their future will be negotiated by Westminster. How do communities react to such uncertainty? Academics and practitioners offer their insights in a public discussion of the main issues that Polish citizens face after the referendum.

Admission is FREE, booking is required. 

Hosted by: University of Aberdeen

Venue: Aberdeen Science Centre
