GLOBAL BRITAIN - COLLABORATION WITH CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY
February 9th 2022
On February 9th, together with the European Horizons chapter of Cambridge University, we hosted a panel discussion on the challenges and chances facing the United Kingdom following its departure from the European Union. In a lively debate, we have dived into security issues, international trade, and the implications for people's daily lives.
For this multivariate topic, we had the great fortune of being joined by knowledgeable speakers from different backgrounds: European Parliament Vice-President Pedro Silva Pereira, Professor Brendan Simms from Cambridge University, as well as, Birgit Maaß, the UK correspondent for Deutsche Welle.
The panel was moderated by Wenke Steinwart from the EuH Amsterdam External Committee and Domonkos Kovacs from EuH Horizons Cambridge.
