The British relationship with the European Union has altered in recent times owing to constitutional, legal and political changes in both systems. Should he be re-elected in 2015, Prime Minister David Cameron has promised to hold an ‘in-out’ referendum on British EU membership following a period renegotiating the relationship. This raises a number of questions, that Professor Menon will address. What are the prospects for a successful ‘renegotiation’? What impact, if any, has the prospect of such a renegotiation and a possible referendum had on UK-EU relations? Will there be a referendum, if so when, and what might be the eventual outcome? What are the alternatives to membership of the EU?
