A Policy Dialogue at the European Policy Centre, Brussels, 8 March 2016 A Policy Dialogue at the European Policy Centre, Brussels, 8 March 2016

UEA Professor and Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) fellow, Hussein Kassim, was one of the four panellists invited to examine the terms of the debate in Britain in the run-up to the referendum on whether the UK should remain in or leave the EU. Professor Kassim discussed the main arguments of the two sides of the campaign, University of Strathclyde Professor John Curtice, detailed what opinion polls reveal about the demographics of pros and antis, while Professor Anand Menon, King's College London, considered the politics of the debate and questioned whether the EU really would benefit from a UK exit, as some have claimed. Addressing the sovereignty issue in the light of the importance of Westminster to the UK debate, Sara Hagemann, Assistant Professor at the London School of Economics (LSE), focused on national parliaments. The debate was moderated by the European Policy Centre's Director of Studies, Janis Emmanouilides.
