One of the European Commission’s most senior officials, Mr. Margaritis Schinas, is visiting the University of Manchester to discuss the future challenges of the European Union, including Brexit, immigration and the reform of the EU’s governance structures.

The Director of the JMCE, Prof. Dimitris Papadimitriou, will chair the event.
