'Highly problematic, to put it mildly'

Deciphering the Conservative Party’s proposals for a new ‘British Bill of Rights’ is not an easy task, as the eight-page policy document is riddled with errors, distortions and imprecise language. What is more, their two main policy aims are highly problematic, argues

UK & EU: New Faces, Old Problems?

The row between Britain and its allies that accompanied the nomination of Jean-Claude Juncker as the new Commission President was seen by some as an effective short-term tactic from David Cameron. But the ‘Juncker bounce’ was short-lived and left Cameron in a long-term strategic pickle.

It is now three months since Jean-Claude Juncker was elected President of the Commission, against the express wishes of the British and Hungarian governments.  What lessons can we draw from this episode about British attitudes to the European Union?

Opportunity! Masterclass with Prof Christian Joerges

30 April 2013

22 May 2013. UCL Graduate School & DAAD Masterclass on European Law, Modern History and Public Policy.

SIGN UP FOR THE EVENT.

Graduate School Masterclasses are a  programme of talks and workshops designed specifically for early-career researchers to hear from, interact with and be inspired by experienced academic researchers. This upcoming workshop is organised in collaboration with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the German national agency for the support of international academic cooperation.

The masterclass will feature Christian Joerges, Professor of Law and Society at the Hertie School of Governance, and Mary Fulbrook, Professor of German History at UCL.

PROGRAMME:

09:45 – Tea & Coffee
10:00 – Introduction, Prof Albert Weale (UCL SPP)
10:15 – Presentation from Prof Christian Joerges
10:45 - Presentation from Prof Mary Fulbrook
11:15 – Questions & Answers
12:00 – Lunch
13:00 – End

The speakers have been invited to talk about their current research and the business of research in general, their views on how ideas are generated and research projects realised. The sessions also seek to present speakers' views and experiences of their time in academia, their ways of working and their interesting careers. Open to a restricted number of participants, sessions are conceived as being interactive, with a presentation from the speaker and plenty of time for the audience to ask questions. Each speaker will give their unique perspective on these issues, and although the talks will focus on a particular discipline, the chance to listen to and talk to a senior member of the global research community should appeal more widely to researchers considering a future in international research.
