The COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with domestic unrest in America and the looming US presidential election, has eclipsed other headlines and made our memories foggy. Consequential events from less than a year ago at times feel light-years away. Yet many events—battles, protests, migrations—are ongoing, and the repercussions of others continue to reverberate.

In this series, we look back at PVG analysis on critical events we would do well to remember.


At midnight on January 31, 2020, the United Kingdom officially left the European Union. The break has drastic implications for the balance of power within the EU, and for the UK’s economy and border.

While COVID-19 continues to spread around the world, the potential that the UK’s Brexit transition woes will be compounded is high. In addition to the potential economic fallout, there is also a risk of violence related to Northern Ireland’s border with the Republic of Ireland.

For this week’s “Remember This?” we’re taking a look back at PV@G posts on Brexit and its implications for the UK, Europe, and beyond.
