THIS EVENT IS TWO WEEKS LATER THAN USUAL.
Please take note of the changed date; we hope this doesn't cause any issues.
You may remember - and hopefully came to! - our EU Referendum event back in May 2016 where Dr Phil Daniels (Newcastle) and Professor Anand Menon (Kings College London) partook in a chaired discussion on the positive and negatives of the EU, with the aim to bring extra clarity and insist to a difficult and hard to follow political campaign. As they say - the rest is history.
Ms May has decided that Article 50 should be triggered, and thus begin our exit negotiations from the EU, no later than the end of March 2017.
We'll be continuing our efforts in bringing clarity to the very divisive and murky waters around Brexit with a collection of lightning talks, with Q&A, to tackle as many areas as possible. This will include talks from:
• Phil Daniels - Senior Lecturer, University of Newcastle, specialising in European Union politics and political economy, with future emphasis on the impact of European integration on the politics and political economy of Italy and Britain.
• Dimitrios Gounopoulos - Chaired Professor of Finance, University of Newcastle, specialising in Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) and also issues in Bonds Structure, Corporate Governance, Executive Compensation and Earnings Management. His work has attracted the interest of the markets and as a result of this he was honoured with a Gong Ceremony by the Oldest Stock Exchange in the world, the NYSE – Euronext Amsterdam.
• John Wildman - Professor of Health Economics, University of Newcastle, specialising in health inequalities and the social determinants of health. He has worked on oral health, Quality Adjusted Life-Years and resource allocation formulae for the Department of Health.
• David Harvey - Emeritus Professor of Agricultural Economics, University of Newcastle.
Additional speakers will be added to this listing as soon as they are confirmed.
This is a free event, although donations to help fund Newcastle Skeptics in the Pub events are appreciated. We suggest £3, or whatever you can afford. Seats are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
