London’s NHS, construction and technology sectors reliant on EU workers

Read More

by Carmelo Konmaz, News Editor   In the ambiguous diplomatic environment which has thus-far characterised Brexit negotiations, London’s NHS, construction, and technology sectors will require a heightened transitional period if they are to avoid lasting damage, a recently published report has warned. These three sectors in London are still largely reliant on immigrants from the European Union, according to findings published by the London Assembly’s economic committee. Indeed, EU-born immigrants…

“Hard Brexit” will Jeopardise Environmental Protection

Read More

By Yllka Krasniqi There has been endless commentary on the effects of ‘Hard Brexit’ on the economy, immigration and on relations between the EU and the UK, but little has been mentioned on the impact of Brexit on the environment. If pursued by Theresa May, a “Hard Brexit” would entail the withdrawal of the UK from the single market. This, in turn, would signify that the UK will no longer…

Should the European Union adopt a Common European Army ?

Read More

By Eponine Howarth  The weekly newspaper “New Europe” published an article entitled “Germany says it’s time for a European Defence Union” on September 8th 2016. Indeed, Ursula Von Der Leyen, German Defence Minister, said so while on NATO business in Vilnius, Lithuania. The idea of a European Defence Community, aiming for common institutions, a common budget and a common army, had been proposed by the French Prime Minister, René Pleven,…

A Liberal Manifesto: How we defend globalisation post-Brexit

The vote to Leave the EU on June 23rd was not just about the EU; it was a vote against globalisation and a defeat for liberalism. Of course, the arguments were made in the context of the EU, but the issues that were debated were much broader.  The vote to Leave was a vote against immigration.  It was a vote against ‘established’ economics.  It was a vote against internationalism.  It…

Why it is wrong to think Britain can do it the Swiss way

Read More

Often, way too often, Brexiteers point with the finger at Switzerland claiming it is doing well outside the European Union. But several points about the Swiss model are missing. Equally, terms such as sovereignty, immigration or democratic deficit are over used neglecting the context. Or, simply politically abused. As a Swiss citizen studying EU Politics, I aim at describing the Swiss model and why it cannot be what Brexiteers want….

A Country of Contrasts

By Martyn Wong. Over 155 years ago, Charles Dickens penned the famous introduction to ‘A Tale of Two Cities’: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the…

An International Relations account of Brexit

Read More

On the morning of June 25th, I woke up, as many of us, to the unexpected result that 51.9% of Britain had voted to leave the European Union. As a French citizen, whose father is British, mum is French and was born in Brussels (but lived in New York, Geneva and Brussels before coming to study in London – typical LSE story), I first and foremost feel strongly European. So as…
