October 6, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Join UNC Global and the College of Arts and Sciences as they present a special virtual event—“The Brexit Shock: Why it Happened, and What Now?”—on Thursday, October 6, 2016, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. The event will take place in Chapel Hill, but alumni and friends from around the world are invited to livestream this event showcasing our faculty and their commitment to global issues.
This special panel discussion will feature Liesbet Hooghe, the W.R. Kenan Jr. Distinguished Professor of Political Science, and Gary Marks, the Burton Craige Professor of Political Science. Together and separately they have written extensively on issues relating to multi-level governance and the European Union specifically, as well as on other topics. In this showcase panel, Hooghe and Marks will discuss the United Kingdom’s EU referendum and its aftermath.
“The College of Arts and Sciences has some of the most outstanding faculty in the world,” said Kevin Guskiewicz, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. “We are fortunate to have so many like Gary and Liesbet who can leverage their global expertise to further educate us all on emerging areas of importance such as Brexit. This panel will be another opportunity to showcase the great work of our world class faculty and share that with our alumni and friends across the globe.”
