Centre for Britain and Europe
The purpose of the Centre for Britain and Europe is to provide high-quality, research-based analysis to a wide range of stakeholders on the most salient issues affecting the UK, Europe, and their various relationships.
The relationship between Britain and Europe has never been more fraught, nor more interesting. The outcome of the 2016 Referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU indicates enormous changes, across a variety of strategic sectors: politics, security and defence, law, finance, trade, science and higher education, business and supply chains, the creative industries, and many more. Our work fosters progressive insights on a wide range of UK-European relations, exploring short, medium and long-term inter-sectoral trends.
We aim to provide high-quality, research-based analysis to a wide range of stakeholders on the most salient issues affecting the UK, Europe, and their various relationships.
Our research is used to inform our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, providing opportunities for students to study and work on key British and European policies.
