This conference will explain and interrogate the Anglosphere concept in the light of Brexit. It will examine the utility of the Anglosphere for policy-makers by analysing its historic origins and contemporary manifestations. With new policy dilemmas creating strains on the post-Cold War world order, leading scholars from multi-disciplinary backgrounds will explore the commonalities and divergences in the Anglosphere concept within and across Anglophone states. In so doing, the conference will inform policy-making and public debate in the United Kingdom and across the ‘English-speaking world’ by establishing connections between academia, government and the public on a topic of increasing political, economic and socio-cultural salience.
