A year after Prime Minister Theresa May announced her strategy for Britain's exit from the European Union, Britain and the European Union are committed to finalising their divorce on March of 2019. This has renewed scrutiny, and pressure, on German leadership both at home and in the European Union. The Forum on Geopolitics is pleased to welcome Prof. Hans-Werner Sinn, former President of the Ifo Institute, for a lecture made possible by the generous support of Cook Holdings. Prof. Sinn will explore the challenges--and opportunities--facing Britain, Germany, and the European Union. 
About the Speaker:
