Brexit - Past, Present and Future

1st July 2020, 14:00 to 16:00, Virtual

The Global Policy Institute at the University of Durham and the European Institute at UCL are preparing a Special Issue of the Journal Global Policy (Wiley Blackwell) on “Brexit – Past, Present and Future”, due out in 2021.

In the light of the momentous and highly complex process of the UK separating from the European Union, we are bringing together a number of internationally recognised authors from political science, history and law to create a Special Issue of “Global Policy”.

In preparation, contributors will meet in three webinars – on 17 June, 1 July and 15 July 2020 – to analyse the constitutional and political ramifications as well as the prehistory of Brexit from a multidisciplinary perspective.

The webinars are primarily for the authors to discuss and foster the coherence between their contributions to the special issue. We do however invite MSc/LLM or PhD students at UCL and Durham to audit the webinars.

Should you be interested in attending, please RSVP to Louise Haysey (Durham) - email: You will be sent joining details prior to the event.
