Reflections on the Brexit Study Tour 26 – 31 March 2019
Quaker diplomacy at the heart of Europe was how Andrew Lane, director of the Quaker Council for European Affairs (QCEA), summarised the role of the team at Quaker House, Brussels, on the first morning of the special ‘Brexit’ Study Tour. With thirty participants, this was the largest tour run by QCEA and was timed to cover the day the UK was to leave the European Union after over 40 years of membership.
We had come to learn more about the work of the EU in the current political context, to reflect on European cooperation and to be together to witness against the separation, isolation and hate crime that is on the rise across Europe. Leading our sessions and outings were Andrew Lane and Martin Leng from QCEA, and Maud Grainger, Woodbrooke’s Faith in Action Tutor.
