Bath academic contributes to House of Commons report

A University of Bath academic has made an important contribution to a report published by the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Commons this week.

Professor Richard Whitman, from the Department of European Studies & Modern Languages, submitted oral and written evidence to the committee’s investigation into the foreign policy aspects of the Lisbon Treaty in November 2007.

Professor Whitman’s evidence is cited in several places throughout the report, which argued that parts of the treaty were no different from the abandoned EU Constitution, and accused the government of downplaying the importance of some new EU institutions and roles.

The text of all committee publications, including reports, can be found on the committee’s website in the related links section.
