Chatham House, London

Event Documents


Hilary Benn MP, UK Shadow Foreign Secretary
Chair: Professor Richard G Whitman, Visiting Senior Fellow, Europe Programme, Chatham House; Director of the Global Europe Centre and Professor of Politics and International Relations, University of Kent


Hilary Benn will make present an internationalist case for Britain remaining in the European Union. Drawing on his experience in government, he will contend that being in Europe strengthens the UK’s voice on major international challenges such as regional conflict and climate change.

He will argue that the In campaign must spell out to the electorate that leaving Europe would significantly diminish Britain’s place in the world.
