Learning from ‘Left-Behind’ places: everyday hopes and fears for the future after Brexit in England


This project investigated how residents of four urban areas in England thought about Brexit and its consequences. It studied their hopes, aspirations and anxieties about the future after Brexit.

The research focused on four electoral wards in three English cities. These are places where large post-industrial, social and economic changes, together with government policies of austerity, contributed to experiences of marginalisation and exclusion amongst many residents.
