INSIGHTS Public Lecture: Britain and Europe: Historical perspectives beyond Brexit at Newcastle University

About

Professor Brendan Simms, University of Cambridge

The key question today is whether the United Kingdom will order its own space or become a space ordered by the European Union. Taking a long-term view, Professor Simms will show how Europe, rather than the Empire, was generally the primary frame of reference in English and then British history. Over hundreds of years, the UK acted as an ordering power on the continent. Its constitutional development was shaped by Europe, and yet in important respects unique.
