Transforming Brexit Britain

Andrew Richard Ryder

Abstract


The article gives an overview of the key cultural and structural factors behind nationalist populism and the decision to leave the European Union as a result of the referendum staged in Britain in 2016 (Brexit). The article seeks to identify socio-economic and cultural changes that might counter nationalist populism in Britain through a renewed Social Europe, civil society and cosmopolitanism. The paper also considers how a renewed democracy might create the platform for transformative change.
