Until summer 2019, the Institute will develop five projects on themes as diverse as migration, legitimacy, sovereignty, LGBTQ rights and 'democracy fatigue'. More information will become available soon on our Projects page.

To celebrate the award the Institute is hosting an event on Wednesday, 19 October, 6.30pm, on 'Negotiating Brexit: Key Challenges Ahead'. Staff, students and members of the public and all welcome.
