Mobility & Equality - Friends or Foe?

Activity: Talk or presentation typesPublic lecture/debate/seminar


Is Free Movement of Persons in the European Union still maintained as a fundamental principle under the UK’s threat to withdraw from the EU? Or will the EU betray its principles and foreswear equal treatment of free moving citizens? This afternoon seminar chaired by Professor Dagmar Schiek, Queen’s, with a keynote by Professor Catherine Barnard, Cambridge University, was hosted by Queen's University Belfast's Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence "Tensions at the Fringes of the European Union - Regaining the Union's Purpose" (TREUP). Next to the key note speakers, speakers from Scotland, Switzerland, Romania (presently at LSE) and the Universities of Liverpool and Cambridge made this a truly international event. Four speakers have committed to contribute to the peer reviewed Jean Monnet on-line paper series hosted by the Centre for European and International Studies (CETLS), and aspects of papers presented will be worked up into articles in refereed journals in due course.
