Brexit vote leads to uncertainty, probably more EU exits; UGA experts available to comment

Monday, June 27, 2016

UGA experts say the Brexit vote speaks to a “broken” European Union and will likely lead to uncertainty and more exits. Associate Professor Harlan G. Cohen is among the UGA experts sharing his perspective. He said, “After the Brexit vote, the one thing that’s predictable is that we’re facing a long period of uncertainty. Yesterday, everyone knew what the rules were. While the rules don’t change today, no one knows what the rules will be in in three months or two years. The terms of trade in goods and services between the U.K. and the rest of the EU, the rights of U.K. citizens to work, to health care, and to travel in other EU countries, intelligence sharing between the U.K. and the other EU governments, and the regulation of any number of industries in the U.K. are now open to debate at home and subject to negotiations abroad. Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union lays out a process for withdrawal but subjects everything to negotiation between the U.K. and the other 27 member states. No one can know today where exactly those negotiations will lead."
