Alternate Forms of Brexit and Their Implications for the UK, the EU, and the US

Brexit is the first time since World War II that a developed country has decided to leave a major international institution without military defeat or political revolution. RAND’s study, "After Brexit: Alternate Forms of Brexit and their Implications for the United Kingdom, the European Union, and the United States," uses game theory to analyze the broad issues, then delves into the potential economic effects of five “hard Brexit” and three “soft Brexit” options. Significantly, the study also explores the implications for the United States, including effects on US economic, political and security interests, and the alternative paths that America’s future relationships with the UK and the EU may take. Join us for a discussion with RAND’s Vice President, Ambassador Charles Ries, and members of the RAND team.
