Pol Soc Podcast EP 6 - Brexit for Beginners

In this episode I'm joined by Professor John O'Brennan, the Jean Monnet Professor of European Integration at Maynooth University. He helps us to get to grips with the broad challenges that Brexit poses to the EU, the UK, and Ireland. This is NOT a comprehensive analysis of every facet of Brexit, but is designed to give Leaving Cert students, previously unfamiliar with European politics, a good grounding on some of the big issues of which they should be aware. It also hopes to frame discussions around Brexit in a way that makes it useful for the students as they face into their terminal exams in June by showing how aspects of the discussion relate to the key requirements of the course specification.
