What Next? Legislative Authority for Triggering Article 50

The decision of the Supreme Court that Article 50 TEU cannot be invoked without Parliamentary approval means the Government must consider the form of such an Act without delay, argues Jeff King in a post first published on the UK Constitutional Law Association Blog.

Britain has lost a role, and failed to find an empire

Theresa May's long-awaited Brexit speech must be understood as an aspiration, rather than a roadmap, since its realisation requires the consent of other parties and the removal of important contradictions, argues Benjamin Martill.

Journeys and Exchange: Dutch East India Company

Journeys and Exchange explores cross-cultural elements of the Dutch Golden Age and the history of the Dutch East India Company. This small exhibition includes three exquisitely decorated and illustrated early printed books from UCL Library Special Collections and an image of a Rembrandt print from UCL Art Museum, alongside beautifully painted tiles and vases in the style of Delftware. The ceramics were created specially for the exhibition by participants in an innovative programme of community workshops, and reflect both cultural exchange in the seventeenth century and the workshop participants’ personal stories of migration. The project was the result of a partnership with the Wallace Collection, whose refurbished galleries of Dutch art re-opened to the public in 2012. This exhibition has been curated by UCL PhD student Stefanie van Gemert, who devised and led the workshops with support from UCL Public Engagement and Volunteering Services Units.
