Britain and Europe
The relationship between Britain and Europe is a
highly contested issue
that dominates political and academic debates. In 2013-14, as part of a pilot project at UCL which examined the relationship between
Kingdom and both the EU and the Council of Europe, we collated up
to date information on a range of important policy issues.
The series was convened by Prof Piet Eeckhout and Dr Virginia Mantouvalou (UCL Laws). It was run by UCL Laws in association with the UCL European Institute and the UCL Institute for Human Rights. The series received generous support from the UCL Grand Challenge of Intercultural Interaction.

The project included a series of high-profile lectures, panel discussions and seminars that took
place during 2013-14.
