Voters in the United Kingdom will go to the polls today to decide whether Britain remains a member of the European Union.

In an article for Asia & The Pacific Policy Society, Professor Jürgen Bröhmer, Dean of Murdoch’s School of Law, argues that whichever way the vote goes, there are unlikely to be any clear winners.

If Britain decides to remain with the EU, the divisive campaign will leave deep scars, and its impact on the political reality in Europe and the EU will be felt no matter what the outcome is – especially if the result is close, Professor Bröhmer writes.

If the leave campaign is successful, the future is unclear, and it will cause a major political earthquake, he adds.

Professor Bröhmer believes the Brexit campaign has raised a broader question relevant around the globe, about the perception and the reality that important decisions are not being made by elected officials. This is leading to a disengagement from the political system.
