European politics in focus: a seminar series aimed at understanding the current challenges facing Europe

The University of London Institute in Paris (ULIP) and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) are pleased to announce a new joint seminar series.

Featuring contributions from leading academics from both institutions, as well as guest speakers from the media, government bodies, and NGOs, the series will explore some of the key economic, social, and political challenges facing Europe today. Guided by the expertise of ULIP’s growing International Relations department, this seminar series provides a lively forum for debate and discussion.

Events are free (reservation is advised) and are open to all and any interested parties. Seminars are followed by a drinks reception.


This seminar series aims at furthering our understanding of some of the key political, social, and economic challenges facing Europe today. The growing refugee crisis, continued effects of the economic downturn, increased threat of terrorism, and the potential of a Brexit looming, pose turbulent new waters for Europe to negotiate. With the values of a Europe “united in difference” under pressure, under what form and with what membership will the Fundamental Rights of the European Union be carried forward into the 21st century?

Details of the past events are available here.

The seminar series continues in the new year – please check our website events section for further announcements.
