Europe: Six decades of strife and controversy for UK

It's groundhog day in Britain, where the European Union is concerned. The context changes, but the basic issues do not.

The 9 November poll in Catalonia

The recent Scottish referendum set a precedent in contemporary Europe by seeking to deliver, in agreement between Westminster and Holyrood, a binding decision on Scotland's future. The 'participatory process' that took place in Catalonia on 9 November could not be more different. Why is this so, what are its consequences, and where might we be heading?

Yes, EU immigrants do have a positive impact on public finances

The impact of immigration on Britain’s tax and welfare system is a key element in the debate over the country’s relationship with the EU. Yet contrary to received opinion, research shows that EU immigrants to the UK in fact relieve the fiscal burden on UK-born workers and contribute to the financing of public services.

Austerity is Working

Is the EU policy of austerity working? What are the dynamics between a socialist France and a right-wing Germany, and which vision will and should win the battle for the European economic paradigm? What can Ireland, Portugal, Greece and Spain teach us?

This debate on one of the most fundamental questions of current European politics will seek to foster an exchange of ideas pertaining to the Eurozone and economic crises, as well as the future of the continent in light of the challenges at hand and ahead.

For the proposition: Professor Dustmann (Economics)
Against the proposition: Professor Marliere (ESPS)
Chair: Dr. Chelotti (SPP)

This event is organised by UCLU’s European Society with the kind support of the European Institute.
