This seminar explores the scenario that the UK’s relationship with the EU is unchanged, i.e. no referendum or a very narrow vote to stay in. Britain continues to be unable/unwilling to participate in many initiatives, and is unable to lead a reforming block in the Council. In these circumstances what will be the implications of closer integration in the Eurozone for the single market? INVITATION ONLY
