International Relations Public Lecture:
The Future of the EU in the Face of BREXIT
Speaker: Enrico Letta
Chair: Professor Chris Alden
Date: Friday 12 February 2016, 2.30-4.00pm
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
The referendum on the place of the UK within the EU is a unique opportunity to take stock of what isn't functioning in Europe, and to seek out a different track. It is not only in the UK that public opinion is turning towards euro-scepticism, as even in the most European of countries disarray and disappointment are rising.
The reasons for this are diverse and run deep, but they must not be ignored, and this is why a discussion dedicated to the "big picture" must be preferred to a technical debate about details. A win-win solution would certainly be that of a "2-circle" Europe.
Enrico Letta (@EnricoLetta) is the Dean of the Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) at Sciences Po in Paris, and former Primer Minister of Italy, from April 2013 to February 2014.
Chris Alden is Professor of International Studies at LSE.
