The British government has committed to holding an ‘in/out’ referendum on EU membership by the end of 2017. The UK is now engaged in re-negotiating its relationship with the EU ahead of that referendum. The results of these developments will have important implications for the UK, Ireland, the Anglo-Irish relationship, and the EU as a whole. At this event, a senior UK speaker will outline the UK’s re-negotiation strategy.

Other speakers include Marian Harkin (Member of European Parliament), Órlaith Borthwick (Director of Policy, Limerick Chamber of Commerce), Dr Patricia Conlan (Centre for Irish-German Studies, UL), and Professor Emeritus Edward Moxon-Browne (Department of Politics and Public Administration, UL).
