26 January 2017Time: 6:30 - 8:00pm
Venue: Skeel Lecture Theatre, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, London, E1 4NS
The In Conversation series from the Mile End Institute brings senior figures from across the political spectrum to Queen Mary University of London for an in-depth exploration of their politics.
With Professor Philip Cowley as Chair, we ask what motivates our political leaders, how they come to make difficult decisions, and what it takes to win.
Nick Clegg MP was Deputy Prime Minister in the coalition government and is former leader of the Liberal Democrats. He is the party spokesman on exiting the EU and was a leading campaigner to remain in the European Union. Nick will share his thoughts about UK's withdrawal from the European Union, the rise of populist politics and what the future for centrist politics will be.
The event will be followed by a drinks reception to which all are welcome.
About the Mile End Institute
The Mile End Institute is a major new policy centre established at Queen Mary University of London, building on the foundations of our predecessor organisation, the Mile End Group.
Drawing on our unique location within a Russell Group University situated in London’s East End, we bring together policymakers, academics and diverse local communities to address the major political challenges in the UK. The Institute calls on a large pool of expertise from the Schools of History and Politics under the guidance of our patron, the historian and cross-bench peer Peter Hennessy.
