Future of Europe
We meet on the last Wednesday of the month at 9.30 am.
This group has been running since the autumn of 2005. We meet on the last Wednesday of the month, from August to May.
Historically the group has discussed the institutions of Europe, including the European Union (EU) and its policies. However, given the result of the 2016 referendum on UK membership subsequent meetings have focused on the possible outcome(s) of the withdrawal negotiations between the EU and UK. The exit of the UK from the EU (commonly known as Brexit) will have profound effects on our relationships with other European countries and the rest of the world.
The individual group members have varied backgrounds and we try to share our knowledge and opinions. Often specific topics will be researched and presented by one individual, with feedback from the rest of the group
