As the UK prepares to leave the EU, the country looks back at a contentious political debate about its future in Europe. How did the UK end up here? What are the consequences and the options ahead? Which models of European integration might work for the future? How can the EU best manage the relationship with its neighbourhood?

Sir Ivan Rogers, former UK ambassador to the EU with unique insights on the UK’s relationship to the EU, gives his perspectives on Brexit and the implications for Europe in this first EU3D Future of Europe Lecture.
