How Does Post-Brexit Britain Wish To Exercise Its Sovereignty?


A key feature of British politics during and since the referendum was the strength of the division between those who voted Remain and those who backed Leave. The two sides have been inclined to take different views about what the UK’s post-Brexit relationship with the EU should be.

Using conventional survey methods to research public attitudes to post-Brexit policy choices had been constrained by a lack of public debate about the various options and trade-offs that faced policy-makers.

This project addressed these constraints by using a deliberative approach to researching public attitudes, focusing on three areas of post-Brexit policy: on immigration, labour market regulation and food production and safety.
