Interdisciplinary interventions – new online lecture series to be launched

Join us for the first webinar on Thursday 7th May - 3pm (Brussels Time)

In continuation of our lecture series, Kent’s European Centres will be holding some online discussions centered around the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Date: Thursday 7th May

Time: 15:00 (Brussels Time)

Title: Whatever Happened to Brexit? Europe After COVID-19

Just a few months ago, Brexit was the dominant issue on the EU’s agenda – things have changed. Does the pandemic threaten the already tight negotiation schedule between the EU and the UK? How does it change the position of both parties? And how about the credibility of the EU, at times when solidarity seems to be questioned?

Scholars from the University of Kent’s Brussels School of International Studies will discuss how COVID-19 impacts the Brexit agenda, how it affects policies in both the EU and the UK and the challenges that this poses for the future.

The discussions will be hosted by Professor Jeremy Carrette, Dean for Europe and Professor of Philosophy, Religion and Culture.


  • Professor Richard Whitman, Professor of Politics and International Relations, University of Kent
  • Dr Tom Casier, Reader in International Relations, University of Kent’s Brussels School of International Studies
