Overview

Following Prime Minister David Cameron’s speech outlining the areas for renegotiation of Britain’s membership of the EU, this workshop will explore what is likely to be the factors that determine voting behaviour in the referendum. Drawing on academic research, the panellists will discuss the drivers of Euroscepticism in modern Britain, and how key constituencies, such as business and the media, will help shape the debate.

This workshop will be the first of three workshops, organized with the support of the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
