Anand Menon to head a new ESRC project

Posted on 06/02/2014

Anand Menon, Professor of European Politics and Foreign Affairs, based in the Departments of War Studies and European Studies, has been appointed Research co-ordinator for the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC’s) initiative on ‘The UK in a Changing Europe.’  

The relationship between the UK and the EU is a controversial one, hotly debated within government and more broadly by business leaders, the media and amongst the general public. 

The initiative is intended, in part, to follow this debate and to ‘fact-check’ the arguments put forward in support of contrasting positions. Professor Menon commented that, ‘the prospect of a referendum on membership of the EU only strengthens the need for rigorous, research-based analysis of the UK/EU relationship.’

An advisory group of leading academic experts in the field has been set up to provide strategic direction to the initiative. Research will also be carried out on the UK’s relations with the EU and on its partners’ views of its role in a changing Europe.

Professor Menon is ideally placed to take on this new position. His work has explored many aspects of the UK’s relationship with the EU. He is an Associate Fellow at Chatham House, has acted as Special Advisor to the House of Lords EU committee and is a frequent contributor to radio, TV and newspapers in the UK and abroad.
