Prominent economic and political historians will come together to give their perspectives on what the past can tell us about the future. Has the referendum result changed our constitution irrevocably? How and when will we leave? How are the negotiations likely to work and what are the precedents? What can Britain’s pre-European past tell us about its economic future?
Above all, what challenges will Westminster and Whitehall face over the coming years as they address these questions? The discussions seek to offer long-range guidance and perspective to policy makers in a situation for which there is no institutional memory. Historical context has never been more important.
