The UK and the EU: Ask the Experts

An Alumni and supporters lecture
Date25 April 2016
Time19:00 to 20:30
PlaceAlumni Auditorium

Everyone is invited to 'Ask the Experts' at this public event hosted by the University of Exeter. The event offers you the opportunity to ask a leading panel of specialists about possible implications of the upcoming EU Referendum.

This event is funded by the ESRC’s ‘The UK in a Changing Europe’ initiative.  For more details about the initiative visit the project website.

Professor Alison Harcourt, who has organised the event, said: “The public have to make a very important choice in the EU referendum on the 23 June and we hope this event will help them as they consider how to vote.

“The way the EU operates can be complex, and can seem even more so now competing sides in the referendum have started their campaigns. At this event the public can get expert, unbiased information about the impact of both a yes and no vote.”

Questions for the event

We welcome questions in advance either on the registration form, by email, or to #EUAsk on Twitter.

Some example questions from previous events are:

Panellists will include:

  • If we were to leave the EU, what would that mean for our place in the world?
  • What could the consequences for students coming from, or going to, EU countries be?
  • Is the UK marginalised in 'Europe'?
  • Given that we're a net contributor to the Union, are we getting value for our investment?

You can also see a recording of a previous event in Norwich on YouTube.
