Britain & Europe Series: Pathways to EU reform

21 January 2015
Our Policy Panel, organised in cooperation with the Centre for European Reform, launches a 2-year series on Britain's relationship with the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights.
Ever since David Cameron's Bloomberg Speech in January 2013, the question of EU reform has been high on the political agenda. Yet, while we know that the Prime Minister's support for continuing British membership will be conditional upon the Union's substantive reform, we know little about how such reform could be achieved.
This panel, hosted with the Centre for European Reform, brings together experts on British and EU politics, constitutional law and media coverage to discuss the political, constitutional and legislative possibilities for reform. Specifically, it will ask how different options can translate into a coherent political strategy-in negotiation with Britain's European partners and, eventually, in communication with Britain's electorate.
Join us for this panel discussion with:
- Wolfgang Blau (Director of Digital Strategy, The Guardian)
- Richard Corbett (MEP for Yorkshire & Humber)
- Deirdre Curtin (Professor of European Law, Amsterdam)
- Charles Grant (Director, Centre for European Reform)
- Chair: Christine Reh (Senior Lecturer in European Politics, UCL)
The event launches a 2-year series on Britain & Europe, in the course of which the UCL European Institute will host seven policy panels
in London and Brussels, produce fact sheets and an online resource area,
and run a dedicated blog.
