16 December 2015: So near yet so far? Prospects for a European deal on the UK renegotiation package by Ecfr on Mixcloud
Cameron has pushed hard for the British renegotiation package to be included on the agenda for the European Council meeting on 17-18 December. While an agreement now seems unlikely, with February as the new expected deadline, what is the current state of play? From the perspective of other critical capitals around Europe, are the first three baskets of issues genuinely likely to find consensus, and how can the fourth basket around welfare and migration be moved forward?
This event will present the latest findings of the ECFR Britain in Europe Scorecard which assesses the support that components of the UK reform agenda find in Europe’s capitals.
