Britain and Europe. Past. Present. Future? - London, 18th July 2013
What is the relationship between the British constitution and the European Parliament and Commission? How much legislation comes from Brussels and how much from Westminster? Different people give different answers. By looking at the past and the present can we understand what Britain's future can be in the European context?
The Constitution Society and the European Parliament information office in London will address these questions and more with a panel of high profile speakers at the next Young People and the Constitution event.
The event is intended for students, young people and academics, but we welcome anyone who is interested.
Time 18.30-20.00 followed by networking opportunity
