Remain or Leave? A MOOC on the UK Referendum on EU Membership (Stir)

Created by: Delivered by:
Taught by:

The Remain or Leave MOOC is specially created to help anyone interested in the UK referendum on EU membership make sense of the issues surrounding this crucial vote. This course is free and can be taken by anyone, anywhere, while the materials can all be consulted whenever it is convenient. All you need to do is register!

On June 23rd 2016, British citizens will be asked to vote on the UK’s membership of the European Union. 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. The weekly topics are:

Week 1: Sovereignty: Brussels or Westminster?

Week 2: The Single Market

Week 3: Immigration and Border Control

Week 4: Divides amongst British voters

Week 5: The Risks of Leaving or Remaining
