Speakers: Professor Iain Begg, Gordon Brown, Dr Sara Hagemann

The LSE Commission on the Future of Britain in Europe will present its findings at the public launch of its Final Report in discussion with a number of high profile speakers. The Commission has examined the “negotiation issues” at the heart of the debate in a series of expert hearings. What are the options for a reconfigured UK-EU relationship? Will there be a political reaction if voting in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland differs from England? How would a Brexit impact upon British foreign policy? What are the costs and benefits of free movement in the EU? The Commission’s report aims to make a significant contribution to the public debate on (the renegotiated terms of) Britain’s membership of the EU ahead of the referendum on Thursday 23 June. Copies of the final report will be available for attendees and will be published online.
