Peter Sutherland, Chairman of Goldman Sachs International and former European Commissioner for Competition, will launch the Regent’s Report.
Tuke Hall, Regent's University London
Monday 21 October 2013, programme starts at 17:30 followed by a reception
Senior legal experts, Sir Konrad Schiemann and Sir Alan Dashwood will introduce the issue of sovereignty prior to the launch. It will be followed by a reception to meet many of the 24 contributors to the Report.
It is probable that a referendum will take place in Britain on continued membership of the European Union. The issue of what sort of Europe we want, the outcome of the referendum and the impact not only on the UK and Europe as a region but on global trade and partnerships is clearly one of the biggest debates with ramifications for every aspect of society from trade to culture, from education to social responsibility.
This report has been commissioned by the University and in more than twenty short essays provides tested evidence and clear analysis, outlining the costs and/or benefits of a changed status in the relationship between the UK and the European Union for specific sectors of our economy and society. It is, we believe, so far the only independent, wide ranging, professional and non-political contribution to the debate produced by a university.
Places are limited so please register asap.
