Books on Brexit: John Erik Fossum, Christopher Lord and Merethe Dotterud Leiren

‘Books on Brexit’ is a podcast for anyone interested in the UK and the EU. Our guest authors represent a range of views on how we got here, and future prospects for the UK and UK-EU relations. They include: Michel Barnier, Philip Cunliffe, Stefaan De Rynck, Peter Foster, Brigid Laffan, Mary C. Murphy and Jonathan Evershed, and Robert Tombs. In this eposide, we are joined by John Erik Fossum, Christopher Lord and Merethe Dotterud Leiren who are co-authors, with a number of other colleagues, of the book ‘Norway’s EU Experience and Lessons for the UK - On Autonomy and Wriggle Room, published by Routledge. This book examines Norway’s affiliation to the EU and assesses the potential suitability of this arrangement for the UK post-Brexit. It also looks at the relationship between Norway and the UK.The book’s framework is the broader European context. Through an in-depth assessment of the Norway case, the authors ask how much autonomy and room for manoeuvre non-member states have when dealing with the EU. In doing so, the book provides insights about the post-Brexit European political order. And the books analytical framework of autonomy under complex interdependence has relevance well beyond the confines of the Norway case, including the UK, not least since the EU–UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) leaves considerable uncertainty.

Robert Tombs, Emeritus Professor of French History and Fellow of St John’s College, Cambridge, is author of 'This Sovereign Isle: Britain In and Out of Europe', published by Allen Lane. In this succinct book, Robert Tombs shows that the decision to leave the EU is historically explicable by Britain's very different historical experience, especially in the twentieth century, and because of our more extensive and deeper ties outside Europe. He challenges the orthodox view that Brexit was due solely to British or English exceptionalism: in choosing to leave the EU, the British, he argues, were in many ways voting as typical Europeans.

Anand Menon on BBC Radio 4: going to town

In politics and in the national psyche, towns have long been sidelined by cities. Many feel that towns have been disproportionately affected by austerity, due to an urban-centric model that guides policy and the negative repercussions of globalisation and technological change. But almost half of the UK's population lives in towns and, as the Brexit referendum revealed, towns have the power to shape the country's future. Wigan has many markers of struggle — post-industrial decline, poverty, an ageing population — but it is upending the narrative of despair that often surrounds towns. When austerity cuts were implemented nearly a decade ago, Wigan council was among the worst hit and it had no choice but to do things differently and shift power into the hands of the community. In the years since, the town has seen improved health and economic indicators, and a more engaged citizenry. Director of The UK in a Changing Europe, Professor Anand Menon, asks if Wigan offers a way forward for towns across the UK. And is it time to pay attention to towns as distinct types of places - both as sweet spots for understanding political change, and as laboratories for social policy?

Brexit Brits Abroad: can you be British and European

In this episode, Michaela Benson and Karen O’Reilly talk with Sophie. Brought up in Belgium, attending one of the European Schools, Sophie reflects on being educated to be a European citizen. Brexit has made people question taken-for-granted identities, and while what it means to be British has taken centerstage in public debates, for many of those taking part in our research this exists alongside questions of what it means to be European. For some people, this is very deeply felt, revealing that being European extends beyond its rights basis, shaping identities and supported by value systems. Brexit then, is experienced as a fundamental challenge to ways of being and belonging as they find that their identifications as British and European are made incompatible.
