The debate on Britain’s membership of the EU is perhaps the biggest national issue of our time, with passionate advocates campaigning for very different visions of Britain’s future in a globalising world. A debate involving sovereignty, peace and economic prosperity, it has risen to new heights since the euro crisis, and only weeks ago Prime Minister David Cameron promised that his party will launch a referendum on the issue if elected with a majority in the next General Election.

The UCLU Debating Society is proud to be hosting a debate on such an important ongoing national issue, and is honoured to be hosting some of the most prominent and active participants in this national debate.
