Senior European Experts Seminar

SSE Brexit seminar

More than two years on, the UK’s future relationship with the EU is still unresolved. What should the UK’s future relationship be with the EU? How can it best protect its interests while maintaining positive relationships with its nearest neighbours?

EU Member States were united in response to Brexit but have been divided in their response to other challenges. What should their response to Brexit be in the longer term? How can they maintain a united European front on security and trade in the faces of the challenges from Putin and from Trump?

This will be chaired by Lord Hannay of Chiswick. Speakers include:

  • Special guest speaker Herman Van Rompuy, former Prime Minister of Belgium and the former President of the European Council from 2009 to 2014,
  • Jenni Russell, Columnist for The Times and The Sunday Times,
  • Lord Jay of Ewelme, Former British ambassador to Paris and former Permanent Under Secretary at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Join us for a debate on these critical issues at a joint seminar of Regent’s University London and the Senior Experts Group.
