Edinburgh University Debate: Has the European Parliament Come of Age?
Seminar Room 1, Chrystal Macmillan Building, Edinburgh University
Location: Seminar Room 1, Chrystal Macmillan Building, Edinburgh University
Much of the most incisive coverage of European affairs is now available in the form of blogs and social media postings. Why is this, and how does it fit in with traditional press and broadcast reporting? Poacher turns gamekeeper in this unusual event, in which a leading politician, Catherine Stihler MEP, keeps order as a panel of journalists and new media contributors discusses the issues.
This event will be hosted by the Edinburgh Festival of Politics in association with the European Movement in Scotland. It is free to attend but ticketed. Please visit the Festival of Politics website to sign up.
