Full programme to be announced


After the political tumult of the summer, the real work begins.

Prominent economic and political historians will come together to give their perspectives on what the past can tell us about the future. Has the referendum result changed our “constitution” irrevocably? Does it signal an embrace of the principles of free trade or their rejection? Is Brexit a sign of a wider reaction against globalisation? What if anything can Britain’s pre-European past tell us about its economic future?

Above all, what challenges will Westminster and Whitehall face over the coming years as they address these questions? The discussions seek to offer long-range guidance and perspective to policy makers in a situation for which there is no institutional memory. Historical context has never been more important.

Press: please contact for passes.
