“Who is to blame?” has become a familiar question in response to the economic crisis that is sweeping Europe. Some of you have asked me: What will happen to Europe? We often discuss the pros and cons of the UK membership to the EU while the British Government is talking about a referendum. The British media is frantically anti-EU to an extent that it doesn't report crucial decision making processes that affect all of our lives here in the UK.
Professor Hobolt discusses when and why citizens, the media, and national governments blame the European Union for policy failures, and considers the consequences for democracy in Europe.
This event is part of the eurocrisis@lse series.
Sara Hobolt is the Sutherland Chair in European Institutions at the European Institute, LSE and you can put your questions to her. Hopefully there will be enough passion in this debate to continue it after the lecture. Those of you who would be up for it can join me to the Three Tuns for a drink and a post lecture debate.
Venue: Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House
