The aim of Remain or Leave is to cut through partisan rhetoric and the mass of competing, often contradictory information. What it offers instead is a set of five concise multimedia lectures examining the validity of pro- and anti-EU arguments in an even handed fashion. No prior knowledge of the EU is required and great care has been taken to avoid technical, policy jargon. The instructor, Dr Andrew Glencross(@a_glencross), is an expert in European integration who has published widely in this field. It is supported by a grant from the ESRC UK in a Changing Europe Commissioning Fund.
