What might Europe and America look like post Britain’s exit from the EU and in the year of the next presidential election? What can we learn about the fragility of today’s world by looking back into the shadows of European history of the last 100 years?

We will host a panel from the U.S. and Scotland – which voted to remain in the EU – to discuss their perspectives and hopes for the future, and to reassess the possibilities for a new chapter in America’s international relations.

BPC is partnering with the University of Aberdeen, Scotland to co-organize this event. Founded in 1495, Aberdeen is one of 40 ancient universities in the world.

Can’t join us in person? The event will be recorded for future broadcast on Sirius XM.
