SLF Conference 2022

10am to 4.30pm, Saturday 25th June 2022


UK and Europe: Offshore island or part of the main?


Update 10th June: We have had to take the decision to move the Conference fully online, because national rail strikes are planned for 21st, 23rd and 25th June.
We apologise for the short notice but cannot leave the decision until nearer the date as we could incur 100% cancellation costs from the venue.


The Conference

Although Brexit has happened and Boris Johnson pretends the UK’s focus is on the “Indo-Pacific”, wherever that may be, and the government sees trading with Australia and the USA as the future, we remain part of the continent of Europe and must not throw away the history of peace, prosperity and environmental protection built by the European Union.  

This conference asks the question, how are we to continue to co-operate with our close friends and allies in Europe and who are those friends ?

Speakers include former Liberal Democrat MEPs Phil Bennion, Jane Brophy and Rebecca Taylor, leaders of our Dutch colleagues D66, Sophie in ‘t Veld and Gijs de Vries, Professor Chris Grey  (author of Brexit & Beyond blog), Will Hutton of the Observer and our own Duncan Brack, Jane Dodds MS, Alistair Carmichael MP and Baroness Julie Smith.
