Brexit Britain: What went wrong and what next?
Join us on the 8th October for a day of discussion, reflection and action planning21st September 2016
Organised by Another Europe Is Possible, Open Democracy, Democracy in Europe 2025, and the LSE Civil Society and Human Security Research Unit
The left overwhelmingly backed an ‘In’ vote in the EU referendum, but we weren’t able to persuade a majority of the British public to support case. Now it’s time to reflect and regroup.
What stance should we take towards the negotiations? What does the exit vote mean for the huge strains that years of austerity have put on the European project? How do we defend free movement while engaging the public?
