Brexit and empire: a long-term view

Can a long-term and comparative understanding of the nature of imperial identities shed light on some of the dynamics behind Brexit? The ways in which empires – and their collapse – transform their central regions as much as the colonies constitute a significant part of the story, argues Andrew Gardner, summarising an article recently published in the Journal of Social Archaeology.

How to get there

Cameron and Juncker

Ever since David Cameron’s Bloomberg Speech in January 2013, the question of EU reform has been high on the political agenda. Yet, while we know that the Prime Minister’s support for continuing British membership will be conditional upon the Union’s substantive reform, we know little about how such reform could be achieved.

This panel, hosted with the Centre for European Reform, brings together experts on British and EU politics, constitutional law and media coverage to discuss the political, constitutional and legislative possibilities for reform. Specifically, it will ask how different options can translate into a coherent political strategy—in negotiation with Britain’s European partners and, eventually, in communication with Britain’s electorate.

Join us for this panel discussion with:

The event launches a 2-year series on Britain & Europe, in the course of which the UCL European Institute will host seven policy panels in London and Brussels, produce fact sheets and an online resource area, and run a dedicated blog.
