The Weekly Global Roundup

The Weekly Global Roundup: “Brexit Means Brexit” (March 27 to April 1, 2017)

This roundup covers news summaries across six regions: Africa, the Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, North America, and South America. Wherever possible I draw links to Singapore, but I think it is more important to understand geopolitical developments around the world, to draw attention to meaningful news stories, and to highlight both positive and negative events.

Around the world, I rely primarily on the email newsletters from “The Economist“, “Foreign Policy“, “Muck Rack“, “The New York Times“, “The Wall Street Journal“, and “The World Post“. In Singapore, the weekly digests from the European Union Centre and the Middle East Institute are handy. Do send me recommendations of news outlets or articles too, to jinyao.guan.yin.miao[a]gmail.com!

Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Theresa May.

March 27 to April 1, 2017

The two-year Brexit process was formally triggered, when the United Kingdom’s ambassador to the European Union (EU) handed a six-page letter to EU Council President Donald Tusk. Prime Minister of the United Kingdom described the departure as “an historic moment from which there can be no turning back“, while Mr. Tusk said it was not a “happy day” for him or the EU. German Chancellor Angela Merkel “snubbed [Mrs. May’s] call for negotiations … to run alongside talks on defining their future relationship“, while the government of the United Kingdom said it will remove EU law from its statute books in a forthcoming Great Repeal Bill.
