Academics to debate Brexit at STAMP event

The Centre for the Study of States, Markets and People (STAMP) cordially invite you to a special debate on Brexit, on 19 April 2016, from 4.30pm at USSG.19/20.

The debate surrounding Britain’s future relationship with Europe has so far been characterised by a lack of clear thinking about the geopolitical consequences of a vote to leave the EU. This suggests that the British public may soon embark on a crucial decision-making process with no real comprehension of what is at stake. Our aim is to provide just such understanding through a debate panel that focuses on exploring the precise consequences of a 'Brexit’. The debate will discuss, in particular, the pros and cons of a British exit from the EU; the Scottish conundrum; the agreement between Britain and the EU; the negotiating positions and the Treaty after possible exit; why the referendum may be just "false", bringing about no change, regardless of the outcome.

Confirmed speakers include: Professor John Grahl (Middlesex); Professor Leila Simona Talani (King’s); Professor Jan Toporowski (SOAS); Professor Vassilis K. Fouskas (UEL)
