We are delighted to welcome Professor Anand Menon, to brief Japan Society members in this extremely timely event. Following the European Union elections held between 23 – 26 May, Anand Menon will share his views on the future of Brexit and the wider European Union. In light of recent political events, such as the launch of the UK Brexit Party, Theresa May’s resignation as leader of the Conservative Party, and the rise of populist parties in pro-EU nations, Professor Menon’s speech will investigate the relationship between the Britain and the EU, in the midst of a changing Europe.
