£350 million per week and why Europe needs a budget
Date
Tuesday 6th December 2016
Location:
Main Lecture Theatre (MLT)
Description
Following the award of his Jean Monnet Chair by the European Union, Dr Benedetto will give a public lecture on the controversy of the European Union's budget. The figure of £350 million per week for the European Union's budget was prominent in the recent referendum campaign on Britain's membership of the European Union. Given that £350 million is equivalent to just 1 per cent of Britain's weekly economic turnover, Dr Benedetto explains the opposition to the European Union's budget, the rationale for the budget's existence, and the changes necessary for it to respond more effectively to the crises and opportunities of the future.
