What were the real reasons behind the Brexit vote? And what does this mean for the landscape of UK politics?

Many theories and explanations have been advanced by commentators since the UK voted to leave the EU in June. Some argue that these reflect a major realignment of traditional political tribes, while others point to the way the Referendum campaigns were run.

This event in Westminster will showcase findings from the first major synthesis of high quality data on who voted which way and why.  A panel discussion will follow, interpreting the findings and what they mean for the future of UK politics.

This event will help charities and interest groups understand how to reframe their policy positions and messaging in order to better reach both the public and major political parties. We will also discuss what kind of Brexit might be acceptable to the public in the light of their voting motivations.

Panel:

  • Chuka Umunna (MP for Streatham),
  • Roger Harding (Shelter),
  • James Ball (Buzzfeed)
  • John Curtice (NatCen Social Research)

  • Nancy Kelley, NatCen Social Research (chair)
