Stephen Haseler’s book has four themes – Brexit as a result of a crisis in English identity and confidence, since the end of the British empire. Leaver delusions based on a fantasy-world view of Britain’s global power, outside of the world’s biggest trading bloc. Brexit as the cause of destabilisation in and possible break-up of the UK. The need for largely anti-Brexit parliamentarians to re-align parties and fight it.

The panel will therefore discuss Sovereignty, Citizenship, English Identity and English Futures.

Introduction (and closing remarks):
Professor Chris Dixon, Acting Director, Global Policy Institute

Panellists:

Brendan Donnelly, Director, Federal Trust for Education and Research
