Global Business & Policy Forum “The Beginning of a New Europe: What Will Happen After Brexit?” UCLA Faculty Center

Javier Díaz Giménez, Visiting Professor of Economics IESE Business School, Spain and Sebastian Edwards, Henry Ford II Chair in International Management, UCLA Anderson


The Future of the European Integration project and the future of the Euro is, once again, one of the major global risks factors for 2017. British Prime Minister Teresa May has promised to formally initiate Brexit sometime in March. The first round of the French Presidential election will be held on April 23 and the German general elections must be held before October 22. Italy is in its usual turmoil, aggravated by the failed referendum and the stepping down of Prime Minister Renzi, and Spain has a fragmented parliament, a minority government, and the threat of Catalonian independence. Portugal might need another bailout and the Greek pile of debt remains as unsustainable as it ever was. Will the European project and the Euro make it through this year? What will it take to keep Europe together? What might happen if it comes apart? Join Professors Javier Díaz Giménez and Sebastian Edwards for a discussion that will address these questions and more to provide insights and perspectives on the future of Europe and what 2017 holds for the continent post Brexit.  This forum is a collaborative partnership between the Center for Global Management and the UCLA School of Law's Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy. Open to UCLA Anderson and Law School Students and by Invitation Only. RSVP required. For more details and to register>>
