Don’t let the Paris murderers win

Professor Laborde warns against the reactivist response to the Paris murders: they misunderstand the role played by free speech and by laïcité. Further, they allow criminals to set the term of the debate on how to better facilitate Muslim integration if France.

UCL academics receive awards in Queen's Birthday Honours list

18 June 2013

Congratulations to Prof Albert Weale, Prof Sir Malcom Grant, and several others.



Albert Weale, Professor of Political Theory and Public Policy at UCL since 2010, and frequent collaborator with the UCL European Institute, has been awarded a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list for services to Political Science.

Currently holding an ESRC Professorial Fellowship in 'Social Contract, Deliberative Democracy and Public Policy' at the UCL School of Public Policy, he has not only had an extraordinarily distinguished academic career, but also always sought to combine academic thinking about key political and policy concepts with involvement in current policy deliberation.

As such, he has among others had a particular interest in understanding the democratic deficit of the European Union. Building upon two jointly edited volumes on citizenship, democracy and legitimacy in the European Union, he published Democratic Citizenship and the European Union (Manchester University Press) in 2005. He has also published on comparative environmental policy in Europe, most recently with Environmental Governance in Europe: An Ever Closer Ecological Union?, with G. Pridham, M. Cini, D. Konstadakopulos, M. Porter and B. Flynn (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2000).

Albert was joined on the Queen's Birthday Honours List by several other members of UCL, not least UCL's President and Provost Professor Sir Malcolm Grant, who has been knighted for services to Higher Education.

Our warmest congratulations.
