University of Leicester academic appears on live panel discussion hosted by the European Parliament and Business for New Europe

Dr Oliver Daddow from the University's Department of Politics and International Relations recently contributed to a live panel discussion hosted by the European Parliament and Business for New Europe, in London.

The panel of speakers asked what influence has the UK had in shaping the EU as we know it as well as what are the real political choices facing the UK in its relationship with Europe.

Dr Daddow was joined by several MPs, MEPs and other commentators who looked back over the last 40 years since the UK became a member of the Single Market. The event also discussed future challenges for the UK in Europe.

The event consisted of two panel discussions, which have been captured on video. You can view Dr Daddow's contribution below:
