In this latest TEPSA Explainer, Brendan Donnelly, Director of the Federal trust for Education and Research, gives his analysis of Brexit and European Solidarity.
He explains how the vague rhetoric of the referendum translated to a vague approach to negotiations, and how the British misunderstanding of Europe led to a particularly embarrassing moment for Theresa May. Ultimately, he concludes that the success of the European Union in negotiations was rooted in the strength of their institutions.
TEPSA Explainers are short videos elaborating on key issues in European affairs according to the expertise of the contributor. This TEPSA Explainer is linked to the upcoming publication of TEPSA’s new book: “Solidarity in Action and the Future of Europe: Views from the Capitals”, which will focus on solidarity in action and is edited by Michael Kaeding, Johannes Pollak, and Paul Schmidt. Coming soon via Springer.
