A Continental Wake-up Call: Challenges and Opportunities for a Post-Brexit Europe
As Great Britain's political turmoil burdens its efforts to leave Europe, the E.U., sensing an advantage, is refusing to begin Brexit trade talks, and the United States, distracted by the glitter of inward-looking nationalism, is no longer a beacon of trans-Atlantic leadership. Britain's economy, Europe's viability and potentially tens of thousands of Brexit-impacted jobs and citizen rights are at stake. Which side emerges from the maelstrom stronger, and what should we expect in the year ahead, at what cost?
Immigration, Workforce and the New Europe
As Brexit nears, multinational corporations are reassessing their long-term investments in Britain, with many questioning exactly how Brexit will affect trade across the European Union. Meanwhile, as a result of the ongoing refugee crisis, a record number of refugees - some highly trained, many not - have made new homes in Europe and are eager to find jobs. As the region navigates these dual workforce challenges, this session will explore emerging priorities, the unforeseen obstacles, and creative solutions to a complex social and business challenge.
