Oxford Debate on the UK + Europe: why Brussels ‘Eurocrats’ still matter?

The European Project was “built” by many – and certainly the legendary Brussels civil service that comprised the European Commission – the so-called Eurocrats – played a critical role. This role and their influence has, though, changed and evolved. There is also a growing perception – real or perceived – that British influence within the Commission, which has stood despite the UK’s fluctuating political views and influence on Europe, are now on the wane. This seminar will set out to discuss, explore and dissect these themes. To register for this event please send an email to euroinfo@europaeum.ox.ac.uk.
