2014: 'The British and Europe' - Lord Neuberger

The inaugural 2014 Cambridge Freshfields Lecture entitled "The British and Europe" was delivered by Lord Neuberger, President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, on Wednesday 12 February 2014.

The consequences of membership of the European Union and of the Council of Europe appear to involve disquiet and controversy in the United Kingdom, and perhaps particularly in England. In "The British and Europe", Lord Neuberger considers the question of why this is so, and contrasts the attitude in this country with that in other European countries. He examines the issue from various perspectives, including the geographical, historical, religious, cultural, constitutional and legal angles, and considers the implications for the future.
