Join Professor James Wilsdon FAcSS (Chair); Professor Jane Elliott FAcSS (ESRC); Professor Graeme Reid (UCL), Jon Deer (LSE and EASSH)  and Professor Antje Wiener FAcSS (University of Hamburg) for a panel discussion on the implications of the EU referendum result, on 30th June from 2pm onwards at 33 Finsbury Square, London EC2A 1AG.

On 23 June the electorate will have a once in a generation opportunity to vote on the UK’s membership of the EU.  The result will shape the UK’s relationship with the rest of Europe for decades to come.  David Cameron has described it as “the most important decision that the British people will have to take at the ballot box in our lifetime”. The implications of the vote for UK social science are of keen interest to the whole social science community, so we are including an expert panel discussion to reflect on this after our AGM on Thursday 30th June 2016.

The day’s events will commence at 2.30pm with the Academy Annual Lecture, this year given by the Chair of Council, Professor Roger Goodman FAcSS, Nissan Professor of Modern Japanese Studies at the University of Oxford, on ‘The state of Japanese social science; Japanese social science and the State’. This will be followed by afternoon tea, kindly sponsored by OUP.

The Academy’s AGM will take place at 4.15pm and will be followed immediately by presentation of certificates to new Fellows by the President, Professor Sir Ivor Crewe FAcSS.

At 5.30pm the panel discussion ‘After the EU Referendum – where next for social science?’ will take place, followed by a drinks reception, kindly sponsored by Taylor and Francis.

Book your place here. Please note that the AGM part of the day’s events is only open to Fellows and nominated representatives of member learned societies.
