Brexit and Migration: Challenges for Europe
Loading Map....


Mar , 30, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The Antlers, A Wyndham Property


In the coming months, post-Brexit exasperation with the political and business establishment over a multitude of grievances from inequality to immigration will likely shape votes in Italy, Austria, the Netherlands, France and Germany, with the outcome increasingly hard to predict.  Issues of economy, trade, security, and foreign and climate policy are at stake, to name a few.   How have the cultural and economic impacts of migration affected this trend?  What does the future hold for the EU post-Brexit?

Horstpeter Kreppel, Retired Judge, European Court of Justice, Luxembourg
Born in Augsburg, Germany, Horstpeter Kreppel spent a year of high school as an AFS student in the United States.  Returning home, he finished the gymnasium and attended law school in Berlin, Munich, and Frankfurt en route to becoming a judge in the labor courts of West Germany. From the 1990s he served two terms with the Legal Service of the Commission of the European Communities in Brussels, interrupted by an appointment as Social Affairs Attaché at the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Madrid.  In 2005, Kreppel was named to the newly created third section of the European Court of Justice, the Civil Service Tribunal, located in Luxembourg.  He served there eleven years, six of them as president of the multinational chamber, retiring only last year to take up residence in Berlin.
