After years of speculation, a heated campaign, and a referendum outcome that shocked the world, the formal Brexit process begins March 29th. The UK’s exit from the EU is now a 2-year process of negotiations toward a final resolution. Can it be completed in the time allotted and what happens next? Global Fellow, Michelle Egan has been following the story for years and she joins us to sort through the complex implications and activities that begin in earnest following the formal triggering of Article 50. That’s the focus of this edition of Wilson Center NOW.
