Brexit and empire: a long-term view

Can a long-term and comparative understanding of the nature of imperial identities shed light on some of the dynamics behind Brexit? The ways in which empires – and their collapse – transform their central regions as much as the colonies constitute a significant part of the story, argues Andrew Gardner, summarising an article recently published in the Journal of Social Archaeology.

Eventbrite - Live-Stream and Debate: First-ever EU Presidential Debate

From 22 to 25 May 2014, European citizens will head to the polls to elect a new European Parliament. These elections are expected to be different, not least because several European parties will put forward their candidates for the presidency of the European Commission.

In this context, the Maastricht Centre for European Governance at Maastricht University, in cooperation with the municipality of Maastricht and the European Youth Forum (EYF) has invited candidates for the Commission Presidency for a panel debate held in Theatre at the Vrijthof, Maastricht, on 28 April, at 19:00h-20:30h (local time).

As this debate will be live-streamed all over Europe, the UCL European Institute and the UCL School of Public Policy invite you to join us in following the debate – and then debate the debate –on the UCL Campus. The broadcast will be introduced by UCL staff and followed by open discussion and a reception.

Call for Student Questions

Interested in having the presidential candidates answer your queries?

The organisers are inviting young Europeans to send in questions on relevant themes, a selection of which will then be put to the candidates. If you are interested, fill out this form and send it to: eudebate2014@gmail.com by Sunday 10 April.
