Event Highlights: The US-UK Relationship after Brexit
This October 15 discussion with W. Scott Lucas is the third in a series of talks on Brexit and the future of the United Kingdom taking place this October. The series is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Europe at Boston University in collaboration with BU’s Evergreen Lifelong Learning Program. Lucas’s talk, titled “On the Whole I’d Rather Be in Dublin: The US-UK Relationship after Brexit,” focusses on the irrationality of Brexit (the “ripping up of the rulebook,” so to speak), the UK’s relationship with the US and also with the EU in the aftermath of Brexit (“reworking the rulebook”), and the Johnson government’s tactics on the economy, Scotland, Ireland, etc.

A specialist in US and British foreign policy, his research interests also cover current international affairs, especially North Africa; the Middle East and Iran; New Media; and Intelligence Services.
