The authoritative source for independent research on UK-EU relations

Governance after Brexit programme

Governance after Brexit is a programme of research into fundamental issues thrown up by the UK’s changing relationship with the European Union.

Working alongside the UK in a Changing Europe, the programme addresses the challenges and opportunities of Brexit for the UK from a long-term perspective. It enhances the capacity of social science research to address Brexit’s deeper causes and consequences.

Governance after Brexit research can help the UK navigate its own future as well as its relationships with the EU and the wider world. Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), Governance after Brexit is directed by Professor Daniel Wincott at Cardiff University’s Wales Governance Centre.
