Speakers

Neil Carmichael

Jenny Jones

Chair

Professor Tony Travers

In the light of the General Election results, we will discuss the prospects for Brexit and its domestic political ramifications. Our two speakers have taken positions on Brexit distinct from their parties’ leadership. They will have a special insight into Brexit and party politics. 

Neil Carmichael (@stroud_neil) is Conservative Candidate for Stroud. He was elected to Parliament in 2010 and to Chair of the Education Select Committee in June 2015, having served as a member of the Education Select Committee between 2010 and 2015. He was also a member of the Environmental Audit Committee and established three All Parliamentary Party Groups: Governance and Leadership in Education, Meningitis and Vascular Diseases. He is also Chair of Modern Europe and is seeking re-election as the Conservative MP for Stroud in the 2017 General Election.

Jenny Jones (@GreenJennyJones) is Green Party Member of the House of Lords. She has held several prominent political roles: Deputy Mayor of London, Deputy Chair of the London Assembly’s Police and Crime Committee, Green Councillor for Southwark Council and Chair of the Green Party of England and Wales. She served on the London Assembly from 2000-16 where she worked on housing, policing and civil liberties, cycling and walking, road safety and the legacy of the 2012 Olympics/ Paralympics. In the 2000 to 2008 London administration, under Ken Livingstone, she was the Mayor’s Green Transport Advisor, advising him on sustainable forms of transport and Chair of the London Food Board. 

Tony Travers is Director of LSE London, a research centre at the London School of Economics. He is also a Visiting Professor in the LSE’s Government Department. 

The LSE European Institute (@LSEEI) is a centre for research and graduate teaching on the processes of integration and fragmentation within Europe. In the most recent national Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) the Institute was ranked first for research in its sector.
