The Regent's Report- The UK and Europe: Costs, Benefits, Options-Friday, 4th September 2015 Europe House

Regent's University London has revised its original 2013 report, "The UK and Europe: Costs, Benefits, Options" in light of the upcoming referendum on continued UK membership of the EU and the significant implications the result will have on the UK and the EU as a whole. The updated and abridged report seeks to make a comprehensive, independent and non-political contribution to the debate, by exploring the policy areas at the heart of the relationship between the UK and the EU. The report's eminent academics and practitioners span a broad range of policy areas: from energy to migration, higher education to financial services and fisheries to foreign and security policy.

You are invited to join us, the editors and a number of contributors on 4th September (time: 12.15-2.30pm) to discuss their findings and brief commentary on their area of expertise.

A copy of the report is available online and printed copies will be distributed at the seminar.
