12th European Dialogue of the Foundation

The United Kingdom’s position in Europe, in particular its relations with the European Union, constitute a major stake in the British elections of May 7th, 2015.
Will the British people be finally called upon to express itself by referendum on continued British membership to the EU as apparently considered by the U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron? Will the United Kingdom try to renegotiate the terms of its membership to the EU? What are the common interests of the United Kingdom with the other members of the EU? Is there a British specificity?
Such are the questions that will be dealt with during the next European Dialogue of the Foundation, chaired by its President Pat Cox.
Around President Cox, Dialogue participants will be Lord Hannay of Chiswick, a member of the British House of Lords but also a former UK permanent representative to the European Union, Sir William Cash, a member of the British House of Commons, Martin Bailey, chairman of the association Pro Europa, and John Peet, editor for European Affairs at The Economist.
