Book your free place here.
The United Kingdom faces a momentous decision, whether to leave or to remain in the European Union. Voters, who will soon be asked to settle the matter in a referendum, are looking for more information and impartial analysis. At this meeting, we will discuss the issues at stake with the help of a panel of academic specialists. Among the matters we will cover are: the impact of the EU on the economy and jobs; immigration; European and national security; the political implications of Europe; national sovereignty; and the impact on the North East of Scotland region. We will also look at the Government’s negotiations, the EU response and what it will mean for our future.
