Ever since David Cameron’s Bloomberg Speech in January 2013, the question of EU reform has been high on the political agenda. Yet, while we know that the Prime Minister’s support for continuing British membership will be conditional upon the Union’s substantive reform, we know little about how such reform could be achieved.

This policy panel, hosted by the UCL European Institute in cooperation with the Centre for European Reform, brings together experts on British and EU politics, constitutional law and media coverage to discuss the political, constitutional and legislative possibilities for reform. Specifically, it will ask how different options can translate into a coherent political strategy—in negotiation with Britain’s European partners and, eventually, in communication with the electorate.

The panel launches a 2-year series on Britain's relationship with the EU and the European Court of Human Rights, run by the UCL European Institute and co-funded by the European Commission.
