The Institute for Politics and Society invites you to a public debate on “The Brexit Drama Heads to Climax.”

The possibility of a hard Brexit or a no-deal Brexit is increasing every day. It is not clear yet what fate awaits the EU citizens living in the UK and the British on the continent. Even more uncertain is the nature of the future trade and cooperation between the two entities.

Has the EU27 done its utmost against a no-deal Brexit? Where will the negotiating steps of the British Prime Minister Theresa May lead? Will the Brexit crisis reach its climax in the last days of March? How will it impact the Irish backstop?

Welcome Speech:

Lucy Hughes, Deputy Head of Mission, British Embassy in the Czech Republic
