19 May 2016, Institute of International Affairs (IIA), University of Iceland
On 19 May the IIA organised an open seminar with John O’Brennan where he discussed the upcoming referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union and its implications for Ireland and the EU. Mr. O’Brennan holds the Jean Monnet Chair of European Integration at Maynooth University and is the Director of the Maynooth Centre for European and Eurasian Studies. He focuses on European Integration and the EU institutions and, specifically on the process and politics of the EU’s Enlargement policy. He is currently finishing a monograph which examines the EU’s role in the Western Balkans and will shortly begin a project examining the role of the European Commission in the post-accession process in Bulgaria and Romania.
