The Centre for Scottish Public Policy will host a series of public debates ahead of the referendum on the United Kingdom’s membership of the European Union, set for 23rd June.

The debates, to be held during the month of May, are being organised by an umbrella of organisations to examine the UK's relationship with the European Union as voters prepare to make a key decision for the nation's future.

The events will feature a panel of high profile public figures from different sides of the debate, and will be an opportunity to engage in open and considered discussion on this important decision for Scotland and the wider UK. The debates will be chaired by CSPP Chair, Professor Richard Kerley. 

We look forward to sending CSPP members notice of these events once final details are available. Current confirmed debates include:
