Researching Brexit: between activism, engagement and the perils of neutrality

The discussion surrounding the UK’s exit from the European Union has become increasingly contentious. Its presentation in public discourse has created a polarising debate with seemingly decreasing space for informed engagement from experts. The perils of such engagement, particularly on social media, can be stark.

This round table brings together scholars researching, or actively engaged in discussion and debate, on Brexit to consider the place of academic neutrality. In so doing, the participants will reflect on their own personal experiences and consider how we as a community of European Studies scholars can do better to support our colleagues and ensure salient research is able to inform public discussion both on and off social media.
