PAIS academic Gabriel Siles-Brügge recently addressed a session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly's Economics and Security Committee taking place at the Assembly's 65th Annual Session in London on 12 October 2019. Addressing MPs from NATO countries, he spoke about the constraints facing the UK's 'Global Britain' agenda in trade policy, including: uncertainty over the future EU-UK trade relationship; domestic political contention and Executive-legislative tensions and an unfavourable international policy environment in the wake of increasing US unilateralism.
We are delighted to announce that PAIS and the Department of Economics are once again hosting a Warwick Question Time to debate current affairs. It will take place on Wednesday 2nd October, 6-7.30pm, in the Butterworth Hall, Warwick Arts Centre.
The event is very similar in format to the popular BBC television show, and will form part of our induction activities for PAIS and Economics students to start the new academic year in style and is an excellent opportunity for students to engage with politicians, policy makers and academics on major issues and questions that concern the world.
The panellists will be:
- Rachana Shanbhogue - Business correspondent, The Economist
- Stephen Kinnock MP - Labour Member of Parliament for Aberavon and member of the Select Committee on Exiting the European Union
- Alicia Kearns - Former Conservative Parliamentary Candidate and expert in National Security and Counter-Terrorism
- Remi Trovo - Year 2, BA Hons Politics and International Studies
- Paula Bejarano Carbo - Year 3, BA Hons Philosophy, Politics and Economics
The panel will be chaired by Professor Chris Anderson, Professor in European Politics and Policy at the European Institute, London School of Economics and a former Professor of Politics and Economics at Warwick.
More details and a registration form can be found here. Please do register ASAP to ensure your place. We look forward to seeing you there!
Together with Ferdi De Ville (Ghent University), PAIS academic Gabriel Siles-Brügge has co-edited a new Special Issue on the impact of Brexit on EU policies. While the effects of Brexit on the UK have been the subject of extensive scholarly engagement, this Special Issue tries to plug the gap when it comes to the study of Brexit's impact on the EU and its policies. In doing so, it features contributions from leading EU Studies scholars on the impact of the UK's departure on the EU's Single Market, the EU's approach to climate change governance and the EU's foreign and security policy.
The Special Issue also features an article by Ferdi De Ville and Gabriel Siles-Brügge on the impact of Brexit on EU trade policy, which challenges received wisdom by arguing that the UK's exit will not necessarily push the EU in a more protectionist policy direction. It is available for free from: https://www.cogitatiopress.com/politicsandgovernance/article/view/2102
The whole Special Issue has been published in open access format and can be downloaded for free from: https://www.cogitatiopress.com/politicsandgovernance/issue/view/146
Dr Tom Long has published a new article in Perspectives on Politics, a journal of the American Political Science Association. The article, "The Promise of Precommitment in Democracy and Human Rights: The Hopeful, Forgotten Failure of the Larreta Doctrine," draws on multinational archival research to contribute to ongoing debates over how to square the protection of human rights and democracy with sovereign protections against intervention in Latin America. The article is coauthored with the historian Max Paul Friedman of American University. Tom's underlying research was funded by the British Academy, British Council, Truman Library Institute, and Fulbright Commission.
