The UCL EU Referendum Debate: To Remain or To Leave?
The UCL EU Referendum Debate
To Remain or To Leave?
Date: 16 June 2016
This event was streamed and broadcast live on the UCL YouTube channel.
Following the shocking murder yesterday afternoon of the MP for Batley and Spen, Jo Cox, campaigning for the EU referendum was suspended. The planned UCL EU Referendum Debate, which had been due to feature leading figures from both campaigns, was therefore changed into a Meet the Experts Q&A.
A panel of academics with expertise in the politics and economics of the EU and the processes around the referendum answered a wide range of questions from audience members.
The panelists were: -
Professor Anand Menon, Professor of European Politics and Foreign Affairs at King’s College London and Director of the UK in a Changing Europe initiative
Dr Swati Dhingra, Lecturer in Economics at the London School of Economics and at the LSE’s Centre for Economic Performance
Dr Simon Usherwood, Senior Lecturer in Politics at the University of Surrey and Fellow of the UK in a Changing Europe initiative
Dr Alan Renwick, Deputy Director of the Constitution Unit at UCL
The event was organised by the UCL Constitution Unit, UCL School of Public Policy, and UCL European Institute. It was chaired by Professor Meg Russell, Director of the Constitution Unit.
