Description

Assessing the consequences of the Brexit vote for British politics and society

Lecture given by Professor Matthew Goodwin, Professor of Politics and International Relations, University of Kent.

Respondent: Michael Jay, Baron Jay of Ewelme

Part of the Governing after Brexit: a House of Lords perspectivelecture series

Centre for British Politics and Government, King's College London

Withdrawal from the European Union constitutes a huge discontinuity in the history of the United Kingdom – on a par with the separation of Ireland in 1922 and the unions of 1707 and 1801 that brought the UK state into being.

In that dramatic political context this public lecture series will address the dynamic at work in the evolution of the British state. Lectures from senior figures in academic history and social science will focus on its historical, cultural and economic dimensions, the capacity of the state for adaptation and the nature of the British state in the post-Brexit future. What new political and constitutional trends are visible in the British state and what will be their impact on its character? How will these adaptations find expression in particular policy domains?

Lectures will be accompanied by a member of the House of Lords acting as discussant. A wine reception will follow.
