SIDNEY SUSSEX AND THE CAMBRIDGE CENTRE FOR GEOPOLITICS: A VIRTUAL PANEL DISCUSSION
TUESDAY 24 NOVEMBER 2020
Dear Mr Burgess,
I hope this email finds you well. I am writing to convey a message from the Master inviting you to a virtual panel event jointly hosted by Sidney Sussex and the Cambridge Centre for Geopolitics, entitled ‘The European Union post-Brexit: the handbrake released?’ Please see below for further details, including a link to join the live video conference on Zoom.
‘It is my pleasure to be able to address our entire College community with news that illustrates how even in these difficult and uncertain times, Sidney is able to come together and engage with important events currently unfolding around the globe. I am delighted to be able to invite you to join an impressive panel of Sidney Fellows at a virtual discussion regarding the state of the European Union post-Brexit. I know that everyone at the College regrets that we are currently unable to host our alumni in person, and I very much hope that you will be able to join us to experience, albeit virtually, a taste of the incredible research, conversations, and education that even now continue to take place at Sidney.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our alumni and friends for the wonderful support you have shown to the College during this period – we have very much appreciated the demonstration of the strong and enduring bonds that exist throughout our Sidney community.’
Professor Richard Penty, FREng

The European Union post-Brexit: the handbrake released?
Joint event with Sidney Sussex College
Tuesday, 24 November, 6-7pm (UK time)
As we approach the end of 2020 and Britain’s definitive exit from the European Union, it is a good moment to assess the state of the Union itself. Without one of its big three member states the EU is facing new challenges, but also new opportunities, and in the context of both the Covid crisis and a new US presidential term. Where is Europe heading, how united is it, and what are the major obstacles in its path? To consider these questions the Centre for Geopolitics has assembled an expert panel, consisting of Sidney academics from History, Law and International Relations together with, in Lord Owen, one of the UK’s most experienced and distinguished practitioners of diplomacy.
Panel: Dr Mette Eilstrup-Sangiovanni is a Reader in POLIS and Fellow of Sidney Sussex. Her research focuses in particular on international organisations, security and international networks. She writes regularly on EU politics, and her book ‘Debates on European Integration’ is a standard reference.
Prof Kenneth Armstrong holds the Professorship of European Law at Cambridge and is a Fellow of Sidney Sussex. He has written extensively in the field of European Union law and currently holds a Leverhulme Trust Major Research Fellowship for a project on regulatory alignment and divergence after Brexit. His book ‘Brexit Time: Leaving the EU - Why, How and When?’ was published in 2017. He writes a blog at brexittime.com.
Prof Eugenio Biagini is Professor of Modern and Contemporary History and Fellow of Sidney Sussex. His research focuses on the social, economic and political history of democracy and liberalism, with a focus on Britain, Ireland and Italy since the 19th century.
Lord Owen served as Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs from 1977 to 1979. From 1983 to 1987, he was leader of the Social Democratic Party and was appointed a life peer in 1992. From 1992 to 1995 he served as the EU Co-Chairman of the International Conference on the Former Yugoslavia. Since 2014 he has sat as an Independent Social Democrat in the House of Lords. He is an alumnus and Honorary Fellow of Sidney Sussex.
Chair: Professor Christopher Hill (chair) is Emeritus Professor of International Relations in the Department for Politics and International Studies (POLIS), and Fellow of Sidney Sussex College, author of the recent book ‘The Future of British Foreign Policy: Security and Diplomacy in a World after Brexit’, as well as of numerous works on the external relations of the EU and its Member States.
