On June 9th, the UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies came together to debate the EU referendum, specifically focusing on Eastern Europe, migration and security.
Panel: Professor Jan Kubik, Professor Anne White, Dr Felix Ciută and Professor Martyn Rady, (all of UCL SSEES). Chaired by Liam Halligan (the Telegraph).

Eastern European migration has been a feature of both the ‘in’ and ‘out’ campaigns’ and as the UK’s leading institution focusing on Eastern Europe, the UCL School of Slavonic hosted an expert driven debate to analyse the facts, figures and place Brexit in a broader historical and political context in the run-up to the referendum. A specialist panel of academics was assembled to lead the debate, featuring Professor Jan Kubik discussing the broad Eastern European themes, Professor Anne White considering migration issues, Professor Martyn Rady to talk on historical regional perspectives and Dr Felix Ciută to examine the related security issues. The debate also features insight from the rest of our multi-disciplinary academic staff and is chaired by one the UK’s leading journalist’s Liam Halligan (The Sunday Telegraph).
