The Regulation of the EU Referendum

Haldane Room, North Cloister, UCL main buildings, Gower Street
The EU referendum in June raised many questions about how referendums in the UK should best be conducted.  Is it appropriate that the government could pump substantial resources into promoting the case for Remain before the final weeks of the campaign?  Should there have been controls on the ability of campaigners to make misleading claims?  Ought broadcasters to have interpreted their duty to maintain impartiality differently?  Is the system of designating lead campaigners fit for purpose?  Could anything have been done to promote more informed and thoughtful engagement from the public?  This seminar will explore these and other questions with four speakers who are uniquely well placed to provide a broad range of fresh insights.

Starts: Oct 25, 2016 1:00:00 PM

Our seminar series is funded by the family of Barbara Farbey, late of UCL, who greatly enjoyed them.
