Keylor in Boston Herald on Brexit and EU Upheaval


William Keylor, Professor of International Relations and History at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, was recently interviewed on how the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union could affect the status of other EU members countries.

Keylor was quoted in a June 25, 2016 article in the Boston Heraldentitled “Great Britain’s Move Could Trigger ‘Frexit’ and More Upheaval.”

From the text of the article:

“If France were to leave, I think it would be a really damaging situation for the EU. I don’t know how it would survive,” said William Keylor, a Boston University professor of international relations. “The British have always had this ambivalence, always one foot in, one foot out (of the EU). But France was there from the beginning. (Its departure) would be catastrophic for the European Union.”

Keylor served four consecutive terms as Chairman of the Department of History at Boston University (1988-2000) and has been Director of the International History Institute since 1999. At Boston University, he has received the Metcalf Award for Excellence in Teaching and the Methodist Scholar-Teacher Award. Learn more about him here.
