23 May – There may be trouble ahead: the Coalition’s European policy

Europe House, 32 Smith Square, London SW1P 3EU

4.00 – 6.30 pm followed by a drinks reception

As you know, over the past six months the Federal Trust has been running a series of conferences on the British Coalition Government’s European policy. This series of conferences has been held in conjunction with the Global Policy Institute and co-funded by the European Commission in London.

The conference series is entitled ‘The Coalition’s European Policy after the honeymoon’. The objective of these conferences has been to review the European policy of the Coalition in its second year, examining in particular the growing internal and external strains upon the compromises which have until now underpinned its actions within the European Union.

This final conference, There May be Trouble Ahead: the Coalition’s European Policy, will be the opportunity for us to launch a pamphlet summarising the discussions of the preceding conferences and offering some predictions for the future.

Our speakers are as follows: Christine Dalby, Deputy Head of Representation, European Comission in the United Kingdom, Peter Sutherland KCMG, former European Commissioner and Director General of the WTO, and Brendan Donnelly, director of the Federal Trust.

4.00 pm Registration

4.30 pm Introduction to Pamphlet

5.30 pm Questions and answers

6.30 pm Drinks reception
