What's the talk about?

Given the upcoming referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union, there is increased interest in understanding the EU, Britain’s role within it and the issues surrounding the referendum.  What is the EU?  Why does it exist?  What does it do?  What doesn’t it do?  Would Britain be better off out or in?  Do David Cameron’s negotiated reforms make any difference?  This talk by Dr Anil Awesti examines the social, political, legal and economic arguments for and against Britain’s continuing membership of the EU.  In discussing these issues, we will relate to the broader question of whether the concept of sovereignty maintains its relevance in an era of globalisation.

Anil Awesti lectures in European Politics at the University of Warwick.  He has researched and published in the fields of EU governance, the history of the EU and Britain and the EU.
