What will the Brexit decision mean for this country’s economy, society and politics? Anticipating the challenges of the 2020s, Laura Gardiner and Gavin Kelly from the Resolution Foundation and Bristol MP Thangam Debbonaire join Nick Pearce from the University of Bath Institute for Policy Research (IPR) to explore how Britain might change in the aftermath of the current Brexit storm. Discussing everything from the UK’s economy model, migration, political parties and housing, to the challenge of generational conflict, tax and spending and trade, they analyse how Brexit will shape the future of the country.

This event will launch Britain Beyond Brexit, a new collection of essays edited by Gavin Kelly and Nick Pearce and published by The Political Quarterly.

Please be aware that Thangam Debbonaire’s appearance will depend on Parliamentary commitments which may change at short notice.
