Around two years after the Brexit-Vote, the initial shock regarding the outcome seems to have mostly been processed by both the European Union and the United Kingdom.

Almost on the second anniversary of the referendum, the Jean Monnet Chair of European Integration, in cooperation with the Centre for Political Education of Rhineland Palatinate, has taken up the opportunity to invite a group of experts to discuss the different “Layers of Brexit”.
