The Making of a European President, and What Needs to Change for 2019

11 February 2016, 5.30-7.00pm
In November 2014, Jean-Claude Juncker took office as President of the European Commission, following Europe’s first presidential campaign. The biggest change in twenty years in the way the EU decides its leadership, this new way of electing the Commission President was meant to bring the process closer to the European citizens. Yet, it has also been called a “putsch”,  organised by a small group of European politicians in a Europe in crisis.

Brexit Divisions I: What you ought to know about EU referendums and the UK debate

8 March 2016, 3.00-7.30pm
As the campaigns on Brexit are heating up, this event brings the leaders of the Stronger in and Vote Leave campaigns together with campaign analysts and activists from the UK and other EU referendums elsewhere. They will be looking at how and when referendum campaigns can shift public opinion, providing practical guidance, critical analysis, and comment. What arguments, stories, images or campaign strategies may shape the way people make sense of EU membership and the choice at hand? How will the political language framing the referendum be decisive in shaping the debate? What might be the decisive turning points in the debate, blind spots, or core assumptions? What lessons can be learned from previous referendums, or from scholarship about political behaviour? What is the role of facts in shaping people’s ideas? More...
