UF Gothenburg welcomes you to the lecture by Adrian Hyde-Price, Professor of Political Science at the University of Gothenburg, on the UK referendum regarding its membership in the EU.
Referendum on British membership of the EU is the most important political decision the British electorate has faced in this generation. The outcome of the referendum on June 23 will have implications for the British economy, the unity of the United Kingdom and the future of the European integration process. This lecture will examine the reasons for the referendum, the issues at stake and the main arguments put forward by the two sides.
