Global Conference 2017
Brexit and the Domino Effect: What to Expect In the Year Ahead
Tuesday, May 2, 2017 / 3:45 pm - 4:45 pm
Voters in Britain and the U.S. endorsed changes last year that promise to drastically alter life at home and the way their governments interact with the rest of the world. In this session, panelists will discuss the ramifications for each country and the world. Questions to be addressed:
- How will new approaches to critical issues such as trade and immigration affect the everyday lives of citizens in the UK and the U.S.?
- Will the inward-looking implications of Brexit slow progress toward the U.N.-endorsed Sustainable Development Goals, which include improving global health and education opportunities and promoting gender equality?
