About this event

Kitty Stewart and Kerris Cooper will present findings from the forthcoming paper which explores the potential consequences of the EU referendum result for social policy in Britain. Written while negotiations continue, with future relationships highly uncertain, we seek to map the ways that Brexit may affect social policy, inequalities and social rights. Drawing together what we know so far from the emerging body of research and analysis being conducted by academics, research organisations and government departments, we consider both indirect and direct implications of Brexit. The first part of the paper looks at effects operating via the political and economic consequences of the referendum - both the fallout from the result itself, and the potential consequences for economic growth and economic inequalities of a future outside the EU.
