The EU Election Special

25th April @ 18:30 - 19:30 BST


More people than ever are going to the polls this year. And the EU Elections, coming up on June 6th, are a pivotal moment for Europe as 400 million voters will decide the make-up of the European Parliament for the next 5 years.

Whilst the UK is of course not taking part in these elections, it is essential that we have an understanding of the likely outcomes and potential impacts of this election, that of our closest neighbour and biggest trading partner, and grapple with what these mean for the next stage of the UK-EU relationship.

The speakers:

Stephanie Luke is a Research Associate based in the Department of Politics and International Relations at The University of Sheffield. She is also a Seminar and Lecture Tutor at Durham University, teaching modules on European Politics and Democratic Political Systems. She is currently working on a European Commission funded project on “data-driven” election campaigns. She has also researched European politics, Euroscepticism, far-right parties and party politics.

Dr Garvan Walshe is a Brussels-based political strategist, with almost twenty years’ experience working in political strategy and communication technology focusing on policy development. Since the Brexit referendum, he has concentrated on strengthening democratic governance in Europe. Garvan chairs the pro-democracy NGO Unhack Democracy, which works on strengthening civil society in East Central Europe, and is a Director of Communications at the European Policy Centre, as well as a research associate on defence policy at the Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies and an affiliate at the Central European University Democracy Institute. He writes a regular column for Conservative Home in the UK.

Jacki Davis is a Brussels-based journalist, broadcaster and editor and a Senior Adviser to the European Policy Centre (EPC) think tank. She was previously Communications Director of the EPC; Editor-in-Chief of E!Sharp magazine; and launch editor of European Voice, the Brussels-based weekly newspaper then owned by The Economist (now POLITICO).

Chaired by Richard Morris, EM UK’s International Officer
