Alasdair Young, a professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at the Georgia Institute of Technology, wrote The Washington Post, December 7 article, “The U.K. is in Brexit Trouble. It Can’t Decide Whether to be Closer to the E.U. or to the U.S.” While the article was accurately printed, Dr. Young objects to the title written by the Post. The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs is part of the Georgia Tech Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.

Excerpt:

The United Kingdom has now used up more than half the time it had to agree on an exit deal with the European Union, once it decided to leave in the Brexit referendum. The deadline to wrap up the negotiations is March 29, 2019. First of all, the U.K. has to decide the terms under which it will exit the European Union. The leaders of the other 27 E.U. member states will decide in mid-December whether sufficient progress has been made in these initial negotiations. If they think that enough progress has been made, the U.K. and E.U. can then start negotiating early next year about their future relationship. It’s not yet clear what future relationship the U.K. wants. It claims that it wants both a close trading relationship with the E.U. and an ambitious trade agreement with the United States, but it can’t have both. Here is how things are likely to play out. Written by Alasdair R. Young, a professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he directs the Center for European and Transatlantic Studies, a Jean Monnet Center of Excellence.
