Assessing the consequences of the Brexit vote for British politics and society

Join Professor Matthew Goodwin, Brexit research investigator at The UK in a Changing Europe and Professor of Politics and International Relations, University of Kent for a lecture to discuss the consequences of the Brexit vote for British politics and society.

Withdrawal from the European Union constitutes a huge discontinuity in the history of the United Kingdom – on a par with the separation of Ireland in 1922 and the unions of 1707 and 1801 that brought the UK state into being.

In that dramatic political context this public lecture series will address the dynamic at work in the evolution of the British state. Lectures from senior figures in academic history and social science will focus on its historical, cultural and economic dimensions, the capacity of the state for adaptation and the nature of the British state in the post-Brexit future. What new political and constitutional trends are visible in the British state and what will be their impact on its character? How will these adaptations find expression in particular policy domains?

A wine reception will follow.
