Europaeum Scholars Programme

Dr Andrew Graham, Executive Chair of the Europaeum discusses the organisation's new Scholars Programme with Prof William James, Professor of Virology at the University of Oxford. After the Brexit vote and 25 years of the Europaeum, a decision was made that it was needed more than ever and a process of restructuring, revisioning and refinancing was commenced. The main outcome has been to launch a new Scholars Programme, which will see 30 PhD candidates from across the Europaeum member institutions embark on a two year programme which runs parallel to their degree. The interview was conducted in Balliol College, University of Oxford where Dr Graham was previously Master of the College.

VOX Founders on Trump and Brexit

The three original founder members of Voices from Oxford discuss and debate Brexit and the election of Donald Trump. Dr Sung Hee Kim, Prof Denis Noble and Prof Bill Dutton founded Voices from Oxford in 2009, and are reunited at Rhodes House in Oxford to discuss the monumental political events of 2016.

The role of the media and social media in both events is analysed, and they talk about perceptions of each event from the viewpoint of the other country. They then move on to a more global outlook, including the role of China and its role in East Asian and world affairs.

Q&A Session: Brexit: An Amicable Divorce?

The Fallout from Brexit

Dr Paul Flather, is the Secretary-General of the Europaeum - a group of twelve leading European Universities - as well as a Fellow of Mansfield College, University of Oxford. In this interview with Prof Denis Noble, he discusses the repercussions of, and reasons behind the UK's referendum decision to leave the European Union. Highlighting the impact of decades of neglect of certain elements of UK society, the decline of trade unions and the impact of austerity, Paul lays out his arguments for why the Brexit vote occurred, but accompanies it with a message of hope - that with hard work and the continued co-operation of European and international institutions such as the Europaeum, universities such as Oxford need not necessarily be disadvantaged. He also spells out the need for an honest analysis of the referendum, which seeks to discover the truth of why it happened, and how a new decades long process must occur to make a divided country united once more.
