Professor Michael Dougan

May 31, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Professor Michael Dougan was acclaimed as the internet star of the June referendum when his lecture on the ‘industrial-scale dishonesty’ of the Leave campaign attracted 7 million hits on Facebook and YouTube.   Since then he has attracted considerable notice for his clear and measured analysis of the current post-referendum situation from his perspective as a leading EU lawyer.  Steering clear of political tub-thumping and misleading economic forecasts, he will be presenting just the facts, backed by evidence. The reality, as he sees it, does not look rosy and so a key question will be, what does this mean for Britain and its future place in the world?


Michael is Professor of European Law and Jean Monnet Chair in European Union Law at the University of Liverpool.  He specialises in EU Law, particularly EU constitutional law, the Single Market and EU welfare law. He has published widely on the subject of the EU’s constitutional framework as well as on the effect of EU law in national courts and on the enforcement of EU law.  Michael has also written extensively on single market law, especially the free movement of goods, persons and services, and the harmonisation of Member State laws.

As an expert on EU law, Michael has provided written evidence to various Parliamentary enquiries; appeared as an expert witness before the House of Commons European Scrutiny Committee and the House of Lords European Union Committee; and acted as an external advisor to Government departments on important developments concerning the UK’s ongoing relationship with the EU.


Stratford4Europe is delighted Michael has agreed to share his expertise with an audience in Stratford-on-Avon.  At a recent event in Bath, Michael spoke to a sell-out audience of 850 many of whom travelled large distances to attend.  With only 200 places available for this event you are recommended to book early to avoid disappointment.

Michael’s talk and Q/A session will be followed by some light refreshments and an opportunity to chat informally with Michael and other members of the audience.

Doors will open at 6.30 pm for a 7.00 pm start and the event will end by 9.00 pm.  Admission is FREE but by ticket only.  Reserved Admission tickets need to be booked in advance from Eventbrite.
