Open Europe hosted a discussion with two former top EU negotiators on how the UK can successfully negotiate in Europe. Should David Cameron get re-elected in May, he will have to start his promised renegotiation with EU partners immediately in order to meet his self-imposed deadline of an in-out referendum by the end of 2017. If Ed Miliband is elected, the UK is still likely to face a series of tough negotiations including over the relationship between Eurozone “ins” and “outs”. Does the government have the political and diplomatic structure in place to negotiate in an increasingly complex and unpredictable European environment? How can it maximize its clout abroad whilst remaining credible at home?
