Presentation material for Bernard Cadogan's lecture presented at the Treasury on 30 June 2016.

Abstract

Regardless of the result of the UK's referendum on EU membership on 23 June, the EU and the UK have a future in common, economies to coordinate, geopolitics to cooperate on. Whether these ends are attained for the UK within or outside the EU, the UK and the EU will continue to shape and heavily influence one another.

Why have the UK public and Conservative MPs expressed such dissatisfaction with the EU post-Westphalian sovereignty model, and what are the reform proposals on offer to rethink and reboot the EU project, and what are these politics of identity that wrack the UK right now?
