In or Out? Debating Britain’s EU membership: 3rd Seminar: National Security & Global Influence

7th June 2016
  • ResPublica

In association with the James Madison Charitable Trust, the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of Kent, including ResPublica trustee Professor Adrian Pabst, is organising a series of three seminars entitled “In or Out? Informing the political debate and popular opinion on UK’s EU membership”. These seminars will take place in the run-up to the referendum and focus respectively on the economy, politics, and security.

The aim of this series is to try to bring some clarity to the debate about Brexit by focusing on the fundamental arguments in favour, and against, remaining in the EU. Our seminars will bring together senior politicians, influential think-tank analysts, leading academics and journalists from both sides of the debate.

The third seminar will focus on Britain’s Strategic Choice – National Security and Global Influence. The focus of this seminar will be on the complex links between domestic politics and foreign policy after the vote to stay in, or leave, the EU.

This seminar will take place on Tuesday 7 June 2016, 2–7pm, One Birdcage Walk, Westminster. To register, please visit the event page or contact a.pabst@kent.ac.uk
