On Wednesday 15th February, the London School of Economics
(LSE), through its local Alumni Association and with the support of
GVZH Advocates, the Chamber of Advocates and the Institute of the
Financial Services Practitioners (IFSP) hosted a public seminar
about Brexit and its expected effect on the UK and the EU. The
lecture was delivered by Dr Tim Oliver at the Casino Maltese in
Dr Oliver discussed how Britain's vote to leave the EU came
as a shock to many in Europe and internationally, raising concerns
that Britain is heading towards isolating itself, not only from the
rest of Europe, but taking a more populist, inward-looking,
mercantilist view towards international relations. He also observed
how supporters of Brexit countered by arguing that in joining the
EU, the UK "shackled itself to a corpse" and that leaving
will allow Britain and the EU to develop a more constructive
relationship while also allowing the UK to return to a more
global-orientated than European-focused foreign policy.
Dr. Oliver is the Dahrendorf Fellow for Europe-North American
relations at LSE IDEAS and a Teaching Fellow at UCL. His research
focuses on UK politics, UK defence and security policy, UK-EU
relations, European geopolitics and transatlantic relations.
Dr Andrew J. Zammit, leader of the LSE Alumni Association in
Malta said "We are absolutely delighted to have organised this
public lecture covering such a topical subject which is clearly
going to leave a huge impact on the EU as we know it. Dr.
Oliver's insights were valuable and thought-provoking and we
sincerely thank him for captivating the audience. As one of the
world's most active research centres, the LSE is at the cutting
edge of political and economic sciences, and having lecturers of
this caliber visit us to share their views is certainly a formula
that we look to continue developing in the future, not only for LSE
alumni but also for the public at large."
