EU referendum: the view of a UCL clinician-scientist

John Martin, Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at UCL, argues that scientific advance relies on creativity, cooperation, and financing. To leave the EU would diminish all three, dimming the light of British science in the world and threatening the UK’s future economy. This piece is part of the UCL European Institute’s commissioning partnership with openDemocracy. For more on this topic, join the UCL European Institute for its high-level panel discussion EU Membership and UK Science on 12 May.

Something rotten in the state of Czechia?

The Czech Republic has been in the news recently because of its politicians' somewhat quick Celtic campaign to rebrand the country to the world as ‘Czechia’. But among political scientists and businesspeople the country's name has long suffered worst damage than this.

SPP-Rubin

Andy Lebrecht was the UK’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the EU from 2008 until 2012.  In this role he represented the UK at the weekly negotiations in the Committee of Permanent Representatives (COREPER) and advised Ministers attending Council of Ministers’ meetings negotiating legislation on inter alia environment, energy, internal market, fisheries and social/employment policy.  He will talk about the evolution of EU climate policy from the triumphant “20/20 climate and energy package” of 2008 to the more cautious approach today, illustrating the complexities of EU negotiation and some of the “dark arts” that need to be practised in order to secure successful outcomes for the UK.

This event is part of the School of Public Policy Seminar Series
