MEP to give lecture

Scottish Conservative MEP Struan Stevenson is to give a public lecture on Friday 24 October.

The lecture, part of the Europa Institute’s occasional series, is entitled “The New World Order: Conflicting Political Ideologies in an Uncertain World”.

It will take place at 6pm in Lecture Theatre 175, School of Law, Old College. Doors will open at 5.30pm.


The event is free and there is no need to book. Just turn up at the door.

The lecture

The MEP will examine the effect of free enterprise in a world governed by differing political ideologies.

He will draw on a number of private conversations with some of the world’s most influential leaders to pose the question - is this model a recipe for success, in which forces unify, or a recipe for eternal chaos?

The lecture will be chaired by Drew Scott, Professor of European Union Studies and Co-Director of the Europa Institute.

The floor will be open to questions directly after the lecture.

Europa Institute

The Edinburgh Europa Institute opened as the Centre of European Governmental Studies in November 1968.

The institute specialises on advanced research and teaching on European Integration. It is the longest-established institute of its kind in the UK, and one of the oldest in Europe.
