Those concerned with protecting human rights have been vocal in their concern that the Brexit process will lead to a reduction in human rights protection in the UK. Indeed, part of the case presented to voters in favour of Brexit was that leaving the EU would allow the UK to be free of the duty to comply with the EU fundamental rights norms, including Charter of Fundamental Rights and the possibly expansionist interpretation of that Charter by the Court of Justice of the EU. As with so many elements of the impossibly multifaceted and tangled process of Brexit, the reality may be less clear cut.

The last decade has seen the rise of politicians, parties and governments to whom the label ‘populist’ can usefully be applied - in Europe and elsewhere. But media responses to this global shift tend to focus on recent phenomena, be these Brexit, Alternative für Deutschland, or Donald Trump. There has been less interest in historicising these phenomena. This symposium aims to historicise these phenomena, and locate them in an analysis of twentieth and twenty first century democracy.
