Former Secretary of State to deliver keynote EU speech at EU referendum event organised by Professor Whitman

On Tuesday 3 May 2016, former Secretary of State for Defence, the Rt Hon Dr Liam Fox, will deliver a keynote speech on how the EU impacts the UK’s international role.

This speech will be delivered as part of a one-day conference organised by the University where other high-profile senior politicians, journalists and academics will gather to discuss the UK’s place in the world and EU membership in central London.

With the referendum only a matter of weeks away, the debates about the costs and benefits of Britain’s membership of the EU are taking centre stage and Professor Richard Whitman, Professor of Politics and International Relations, is bringing together leading analysts working on the questions related to UK and international relations to present their latest findings on the costs and benefits of EU membership for Britain’s diplomacy and foreign, security and defence policies.

This conference is being held on Tuesday 3 May from 9.30-17.30 at Sixty One Whitehall, London, SW1A 2ET. The conference is now sold out. For further programme details, please visit the event page .
