Three years have passed since the British public voted for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union. But so far the British parliament has been unwilling, and a succession of Conservative governments unable, to deliver Brexit. David Andrews, professor of international relations at Scripps College, will assess the continuing deadlock in British politics, identify the United Kingdom's remaining Brexit options, and survey the prospects for the UK’s future relationship with the EU.
David Andrews is a professor in politics and international relations at Scripps College, where he holds the Jungels-Winkler Chair of Contemporary European Studies. His areas of expertise include Atlantic political, security, and economic relations; the European Union and European integration; international relations, diplomacy and statecraft.
Andrews received his Ph.D. in political science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has held appointments at Georgetown University, the London School of Economics, the University of Southern California, the Naval Postgraduate School, and the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. His books include The Future of Transatlantic Economic Relations: Continuity Amid Discord (Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, 2005), The Atlantic Alliance Under Stress: U.S.-European Relations After Iraq (Cambridge University Press, 2005), and Orderly Change: International Monetary Relations Since Bretton Woods (Cornell University Press, 2008). In 1998 he became the founding director of the European Union Center of California. In 2009 the European Commission appointed him as a Jean Monnet Professor of European Union Studies.
Professor Andrews' Athenaeum talk is sponsored by the Keck Center for International and Strategic Studies at CMC.
