Deconstructing Brexit discourses (Cambridge for Europe)

8 June 2022, 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Online discussion with Dr Ben Hawkins, organised by Cambridge for Europe.

What are the origins of British Euroscepticism, and what motivated the UK electorate to vote narrowly to leave the EU in 2016?

As supporters of the EU start down the long road to rejoining, it is important to understand the reasons why in 2016 many people believed that the UK would be better off outside the EU, and why a substantial minority still do.

In this talk Dr Ben Hawkins, a Senior Research Associate in the Social Sciences at the MRC Epidemiology Unit, explores the reasons why the UK voted for Brexit, some related to the EU, others less so.
