The University of London Institute in Paris (ULIP) and the School of Politics and International Relations, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) are pleased to announce a new joint seminar series that aims to understand the current challenges facing Europe. Challenging Europe: European Politics in Focus will be launched with an inaugural lecture by Professor Jef Huysmans on the very pertinent topic of ‘The politics of insecurity: challenges for Europe’.

Jef Huysmans, Professor of International Politics at QMUL’s renowned School of Politics and International Relations, will explore how major refugee crises and the terrorist violence in Paris are connected as part of a broader development towards the enactment of violent democracy.

The inaugural lecture of the European Politics in Focus seminar series will take place on 4th February 2016 at the University of London Institute in Paris, and will explore the current security and migration issues facing Europe.

The event is free to attend. Please book early to guarantee your place.
