Palliser Lecture 2016: The EU - In or Out?


On the eve of the Brexit referendum, Sir John Major, former Prime Minister of the UK, delivered the 2016 Palliser Lecture for Salzburg Global Seminar in London on June 15 on the theme "The EU: In or Out?"

This was the third lecture in memory of the Rt Hon Sir Michael Palliser GCMG, who died in 2012. He served as Vice-Chair of Salzburg Global Seminar and was a founding trustee of the London-based 21st Century Trust, which now works exclusively with Salzburg Global Seminar. His counsel and support were a huge boon to our work over many years. Sir Michael enjoyed a long career in the British Diplomatic Service, culminating as Permanent Under Secretary of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Head of the Diplomatic Service.
