This interdisciplinary course provides students in fields like business, economics, pre-law, public policy, and engineering with real-world experience of the political, economic, and social impacts of Brexit on the UK as a whole with special attention paid to Northern Ireland. With the recent official departure from the EU this January, there are many questions that have yet to be answered regarding the post-Brexit life in the UK. This major world event is creating many challenges for leaders of industry, education, political organizations, and everyday citizens. Students will have the opportunity to interact with people who are dealing with those new challenges.
Complicating matters with regard to the UK's departure from the EU is the subject of the Northern Ireland border. Many years of the "Troubles" has caused many to be sensitive to avoid decisions that could conceivably create a return to the past. How will the new Withdrawal Agreement be implemented in a way that satisfies both the English and the Northern Irish? How do they move forward? Students will spend time in Belfast--miles away from the new border with the EU--to learn about just this subject.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of hotel/hostel accommodations.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. The program leader has indicated that in order to enroll in the course and travel component, students must contact program leader Chris Harben at email@example.com.
