UNDERSTANDING THE POLITICAL PSYCHOLOGY OF BREXIT

Research output: Working paperResearch

To understand Brexit we need to understand the political psychology of British politics and its relationship to the European Union (EU). Using data on public knowledge, groups, concerns, amnesia, and trust, this summary demonstrates the political consequences of the increasing distance between the electorate and the government in the United Kingdom over the question of Brexit; the British exit from the European Union.

Since 1990 the increasing distances between electorates and governments have left ordinary people vulnerable to the emotional appeal of the far-right across Europe. This summary demonstrates five areas of data showing these distances and helps provides solutions for closing these gaps.
