Conversations on Europe: English & Scottish Nationalism and the Future of the EU

On March 18, the European Union Center participated in a videoconference roundtable discussion entitled "A Thorn and Thistle in Europe's Side? English and Scottish Nationalism and the Future of the EU," hosted by the University of Pittsburgh's European Union Center of Excellence as part of their "Conversations on Europe" videoconference series. The upcoming Scottish referendum on independence from Britain that is schedule for September 2014 and the possibility of a UK referendum on EU membership that could occur as early as 2016 were the centerpieces of discussion. Panelists included the European Union Center's Visiting Faculty Neill Nugent of Manchester Metropolitan Univesity, John Curtice of the University of Strathclyde, and Andrew Strathern and Pamela Stewart, both of the University of Pittsburgh.

This videoconference is part of the "Conversations on Europe" series, which cover these and other related issues, with participants from several venues and input from university and community people. This event was held in collaboration with the American Council on Germany and the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh.
