I believe Brexit will harm both the UK and the EU from economic and social viewpoints. Some damage is already visible in today’s political sphere. Indeed, we are living in a post-truth society characterized by populism.  In my opinion, this, among the many reasons, is due to the increasingly frequent use of social networks, where everyone can express and share its ideas even if they are not well-informed. In addition, some politicians use social networks as an instrument to persuade those...

  I often hear about the efficiency of the current democracy in these last years. Indeed, after every voting occasion, people reflect on the voting system. An increasing number of people believe that votes should not weight equally, since some voters are more informed and educated than others. This is a very important and complicated question to answer: should every vote count equally even though people are not equally educated? I believe it would be difficult to create a system that...

I believe Brexit didn't negatively impacted Black and Minority Ethnic groups in the UK. Indeed, the UK is known for being a welcoming country, where minorities are integrated in the society. Differently from many other European countries, in Great Britain it is easier for these minorities to find live, since they have more possibilities to find a job and to learn and adapt to the British culture and manners. This is due to the great system of integration provided by the British government,...

The aim of negotiations is to find a deal that does not harm the EU neither the UK nor the EU. I used the word "harm" because I believe that Brexit can't benefit both players. In fact, the reason why the UK can't find an agreement with the EU is that both are trying to avoid further issues and difficulties that Brexit will cause. Furthermore, both are trying to gain the maximum benefit at the expense of the other. Therefore, the aim of the negotiation should be to try to find a way that...

I strongly believe that we now are living in a post-truth society. This is a problem that we must solve, since politics is becoming more like a sort of "unconditional support" rather than a reasonable way of solving issues. In fact, many politicians started developing their campaigns by aiming at people feelings rather than at their real needs. Boris Johnson’s famous f £350 million a week to the EU” is just an example, and post-truth is not only present in the Brexit contest, but in the...

The UK can continue to cooperate with the EU for important topics such as LGBT+ rights. Leaving the EU must not be a barrier to fight for equality and diversity.

I don't believe that leaving the EU is a signal of shortage of British values. In my opinion, tolerance, inclusiveness, multiculturalism, liberty, democracy, etc. are typical of the UK: by leaving the EU, great Britain do not lose these characteristics. In the case of Brexit, democracy has been respected, because people had to vote democratically. Leaving the EU doesn't strongly change the inclusive spirit of this country, if not by making it slightly less simple to Europeans to enter the...

I read many news saying that, today, people would probably vote for staying in the EU instead of leaving it. As a matter of fact, many believe British people should vote again. However, I believe that it is not fair to replicate a referendum that has the same purpose as the last one. In fact, by doing so, democracy would lose its power because people's vote could become less relevant, given the fact that they could ask to re-vote soon. Therefore, in my opinion, the UK must respect the...

As the Uk is a very diverse nation, I believe Brexit won't change this aspect. In fact, while living in London I can feel and notice that inclusion is a fundamental aspect of this city. I believe British people are open-minded; even before the creation of the EU, they started hosting people from all around the world. This aspect is also prooven by the fact that Sadiq Khan, member of a British Pakistani family, is the Mayor of London. Leaving the EU probably won't have a negative impact on...

I am spending a semester in London with all my classmates. I've already visited many European countries, but not all my classmates did, since most of them come from the US, Asia, and South America. As a mater of fact, being in London is a great occasion for them to visit other European countries, and Brexit shouldn't stop this great opportunity.

Dal punto di vista dell'educazione, ritengo che Brexit possa rappresentare un ostacolo per chi desidera affrontare una carriera universitaria (o, in generale, scolastica) in UK. Tuttavia anche i pro che Brexit può portare all'Italia non sono pochi, soprattutto per quanto riguarda il trasferimento di importanti realtà economiche dalla Gran Bretagna al Bel Paese. A usufruire di questi vantaggi sono però non gli studenti, ma particolarmente gli individui già all'interno del mondo del lavoro....
