UK Event Announcement: In or Out? Debating Britain’s EU Membership

In or Out? Debating Britain’s EU Membership
3rd Seminar: National Security & Global Influence

In association with the James Madison Charitable Trust, the Centre for Federal Studies at the University of Kent is organising a series of three seminars entitled “In or Out? Informing the political debate and popular opinion on UK’s EU membership.” These seminars will take place in the run-up to the referendum and focus respectively on the economy, politics, and security.

The aim of this series is to bring some clarity to the debate about Brexit by focusing on the fundamental arguments in favour, and against, remaining in the EU. The first two seminars have already brought together leading academics and senior politicians from both sides of the debate.

The third seminar will focus on Britain’s Strategic Choice – National Security and Global Influence. The focus of this seminar will be on the complex links between domestic politics and foreign policy after the vote to stay in, or leave, the EU.

This seminar will take place on Tuesday 7 June 2016, 2–7pm, One Birdcage Walk, Westminster.

Among the confirmed speakers are:

  • Lord George Robertson (Labour; former Defence Secretary and former NATO General Secretary)
  • Baroness Falkner of Margravine (Liberal Democrat)
  • Lord Howell of Guildford (Conservative; former Minister of State, FCO)
  • Dr Julie Smith (Baroness Smith of Newnham) (Cambridge)
  • Prof. Richard Beardsworth (Aberystwyth)
  • Prof. Christopher Coker (LSE)
