"Europe after Britain: the impact of Brexit on the rest of the EU"
Join us on 3 November for a lecture by Giles Merritt (Friends of Europe), chaired by Gina Miller (SCM).
A veteran observer of and participant in the Brussels scene, Giles Merritt has long argued that Europe needs to unite, but has been on the wrong track for some time. Recent events, such as the crisis of the Euro and Brexit, have vindicated his warnings. The continent is in a state of unprecedented flux as it grapples with a set of currency, migration and foreign policy challenges, and now with the question of the future relationship between Britain and the rest of Europe. In this lecture, Giles Merritt will set out his vision for the European Union after the departure of the UK.
