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.

Jean Monnet grant finalised
1 November 2013
31 October 2013
Having just submitted the final report for the year-long grant we had received under the Jean Monnet Programme, Information and Research Activities, it's time for a review.
Part of the EU's Lifelong Learning Programme, the Jean Monnet Information and Research Activities action is specifically directed at Higher Education Institutions working to promote discussion, reflection and knowledge about the process of European integration.
Our ambitious programme for 2012-13, funded under this action, has included the continuation of our core events series - such as the Belgian Ambassador's Salon Series, this time looking at the role of European Bioethics Councils; our EU Public Policy Series, including a lecture and masterclass with Professor Christian Joerges (Hertie School of Government); the second edition of our annual Sakharov Debate on Human Rights in Europe held with the European Parliament Office in the UK; and an events cycle co-organised with UCLU's European Society, for example on Britain's relationship with the European Union.
We were also breaking new ground, developing European-specific links under UCL's new Collaborative with US-university Yale, for example with our workshop with Yale Professor Seyla Benhabib. Other highlights included an public meeting with then French presidential candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon.
Staff, junior researchers and guest contributors wrote 13 commentary pieces for us, with two working papers adding in-depth analyses on current issues in European integration.
All of the above we highlighted on our revamped website and burgeoning social media accounts. See our Media Gallery for the video recordings of our events, which were attended by 1,600 people and viewed online by (thus far) 10,600+.
