What is Birkbeck's Big Ideas?

A series of thought provoking FREE events, designed to inspire and bring world class academics from Birkbeck, University of London to the local community, with this latest installment from Dr Dionyssis G. Dimitrakopoulos of Birkbeck's Department of Politics.

About the Talk

Why did Britain vote to leave the European Union in 2016? In the first part of this lecture, the speaker will examine the causes of the outcome of the 2016 referendum. In the second part of this lecture Dr Dimitrakopoulos will seek to show that these causes relate directly to key decisions made by British governments, i.e. politicians who were voted in power by the British people.

Who is Dr Dionyssis G. Dimitrakopoulos?

Dr Dimitrakopoulos has studied in his native Greece, Belgium and the UK. He is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and has held fellowships at Oxford and the LSE after having worked as a stagiaire in the Secretariat General of the European Commission. He has won research funding from, inter alia, the ESRC, the British Academy, the Leverhulme Trust, and the European Union and has published widely on the politics of European integration and its domestic dimension. At Birkbeck he directs the MSc in European Politics & Policy, has served on the ESRC’s Peer Review College (2010-14) and has acted as external referee for French and Belgian research funding bodies as well as several academic journals. In addition to English and Greek, he is fluent in French and has a working knowledge of German.

The event is FREE and open to all, but please note that seating is allocated on a first come first served basis. Registration and refreshments start at 6pm and the talk will commence at 6.15pm. We look forward to welcoming you to this Birkbeck's Big Idea event!
