Brexit: Views from Europe

The Centre for Research on Communities, Identities and Difference (CResCID), at the School of Social and Behavioural Sciences, Kingston University is organising a series of public events - Brexit Futures - to bring together academics, journalists, politicians and other social actors, with strategic and specific experience of the social processes and dimensions involved in the UK's recent dramatic decision to leave the EU, to discuss the main reasons for this decision and its implications.

Brexit has inaugurated a period of profound uncertainty and instability. The divisive and conflictive climate that accompanied and followed the EU referendum electoral campaign highlighted the way deep-seated social inequalities produced radically different experiences of the present as well as visions of a desirable future amongst the UK population.

While the form of UK's future relationship with EU is being negotiated, it is important to understand what impact Brexit is likely to have on the political, cultural, economic and social life of the country, its diverse population, its national constituencies and other EU member states. This series of seminars aims to contribute to this understanding and provide an opportunity for different stakeholders in our local, national and other European communities to engage with these issues.

Speakers

Jacqueline Minor (the Head of the European Commission Representation in London)
His Excellency Daniel Mulhall (Ambassador of Ireland to the UK)
Anita Prazmowska (Professor of International History, London School of Economics)

Denis Staunton (London correspondent for The Irish Times)
Chair: Ilaria Favretto (Professor in Contemporary European History, Kingston University)
