On the 23rd June 2016, the UK voted to leave the European Union. The decision sent shockwaves throughout the world and left both the UK and the EU in a state of uncertainty. What will happen next? Many critics believe that Brexit marks a victory not of the people but of populism. The world is now standing by to see what the impact will be and if Brexit will trigger the movement of further referendums throughout membership states of the EU. Can the EU really pull together through strong words matched by decisive action—from a crisis that is without precedent in the past 70 years or could Brexit mark the end as the EU altogether?
By kind invitation of Bob Stewart MP, The Hexagon Institute and The Henry Jackson Society are pleased to invite you to an event with Bernard–Henri Lévy, Philosopher, Journalist and Writer who will be discussing the aftermath of Brexit and the possible implications for both the EU and the UK.
To attend, please RSVP to email@example.com – RSVPs must include your full name and any affiliations including for any guests you wish to bring. We will send a confirmation that will be required to attend the event.
