We would like to draw your attention to a series of events supported by European Commission Representation in the UK.
The project seeks to explore the impact the new coalition government is having on the UK’s relationship with EU institutions and other member states and how it is shaping the dynamics of the European debate within the main parties. The panel will examine the potential internal and external challenges and opportunities facing the coalition on European issues, while addressing any impact electoral defeat has made to the Labour Party’s long-term approach to the EU, given perceived problems over Lisbon ratification and EU migration. It will heavily involve current Members of the European Parliament for the events outside of London.
On Tuesday January 11th at 6pm (http://fpc.org.uk/events/coalitioneuropelondon) the London launch event takes place the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association Room in the Houses of Parliament with Rt Hon Charles Kennedy MP, Shadow Europe Minister Wayne David MP and Chris Heaton-Harris MP.
On Friday 21st January at 6pm in Leeds (http://fpc.org.uk/events/coalitioneuropeleeds at the Yorkshire Lecture Theatre, Business School, University of Leeds) our we will host Edward McMillan Scott MEP, Linda McAvan MEP and Dr David Seawright.
On Thursday 31st March at 6pm in Edinburgh (http://fpc.org.uk/events/coalitioneuropeedinburgh venue tbc) we will host David Martin MEP, Struan Stevenson MEP, Alyn Smith MEP and others. We will also be holding an event in Liverpool in February or early March. To RSVP for any of these events we’d ask people to email firstname.lastname@example.org
