    Venue: Brighton Holiday Inn, Lancing 1
    The debate over Britain’s place in Europe has reached fever pitch in recent months following David Cameron’s commitment to hold a referendum on EU membership by no later than 2017. The promise of renegotiating Britain’s membership terms has been met with scepticism in Europe. Moreover, the prime minister’s tough stance has not earned him many political dividends at home: UKIP is on the march and backbench revolts are continuing to fester.

    Dates: 30 September 2013
    Venue: St Matthew’s Conference Centre, 20 Great Peter Street, Westminster, SW1P 2BU
    There is a lively debate underway about movement of labour in the EU and its impact on the quality of work. Indeed, some have argued that low wage competition across Europe has created a precarious job situation for the lower skilled and less well educated. Concerns about fairness and a ‘race to the bottom’ have again come to the fore, while politicians search for solutions that can protect both decent work and the freedom of movement.

    Advanced economies have to reassess how they earn their living and make their way in a post-financial crash world increasingly shaped by emerging economies. The focus of the UK’s reassessment has largely revolved around ‘rebalancing’ the economy away from banking and in favour of industrial policies that would help revive manufacturing and increase innovation.
