EU referendums: how they are won and lost with Prof. Ece Özlem Atikcan

We will be holding a fruitful presentation on EU referendums and their campaigns by an expert in the field, Prof. Ece Özlem Atikcan. Prof Atikcan is an associate Professor in Comparative Politics at the University of Warwick and Visiting Senior Research Fellow, at University College London. With Brexit in the headlines over the past years, it's worth examining other referendums in the EU. Prof. Atikcan focuses her research on EU referendum campaigning and has recently published "Framing Risky Choices: Brexit and the Dynamics of High-Stakes Referendums". This will promise to be a very interesting presentation on how and why referendums on EU issues are won and lost.

When? Wednesday, 3 March at 5pm GMT

Where? Microsoft teams
