CER podcast: February 18-19 EU Council Summit

19 February 2016

The CER's Sophia Besch talks to CER director Charles Grant and senior research fellow John Springford about their take on David Cameron's EU deal at the February EU summit.

Besch asks:

What were David Cameron’s objectives going into the negotiations, what were his wins for Britain last week and where did he have to make concessions?

How is this reform deal perceived in Brussels and in other European capitals?

What does this deal mean for Britain in Europe and for Cameron's goal to sway his own party towards staying In?

And finally, moving on from the Brussels deal, which issues will be discussed over the next months and how will the decision of Mayor Boris Johnson to support the Out campaign play into the debate?
