VIDEO: Professor Michael Kenny - Understanding the Re-emergence of the English Question

Publication date:

CU

Speaker: Professor Michael Kenny
8th December 2014

In this seminar Michael Kenny, author of the recently published "The Politics of English Nationhood", offers a longer view on the English question, exploring important shifts in English national consciousness over the last two decades and the politicisation of arguments about the constitution and territorial politics more generally. Against this background, he offers a critical perspective on current debates about West Lothian, the decentralisation of English governance and the future balance of the union. Michael Kenny is Director of the Mile End Institute at Queen Mary University of London, and a Professor in the School of Politics and International Relations. He has published in the fields of British political ideas and party politics, and held a Major Research Fellowship from the Leverhulme Trust from 2012-14 to work on the politics of English nationhood.

Publication date:

Introduction

I am most grateful for the kind invitation that has been extended to me tonight by both the UCL Constitution Unit and Judicial Institute to come and talk about the operation of the ECHR and the Human Rights Act from a Conservative perspective. Throughout my time in politics, but particularly after I became Attorney General in 2010 I have come to value the work that you have done and my opportunities to learn from your events and publications.
