Since 2014 ESRC have made significant investments in impact, engagement and research on the process of Brexit through the UK in a Changing Europe initiative and the Brexit Priority Grants. As part of a planned portfolio of ambitious work on governance, trust and democracy, ESRC will be issuing a call in early 2018 for a research programme on Governance after Brexit, directed by Professor Daniel Wincott (ESRC Leadership Coordinator for Governance and Brexit).

The programme will address the implications of Brexit, adding research with longer-term perspective to the ESRC portfolio. The implications of Brexit span society, politics and the economy across the UK. It will have an impact on the UK’s constitutional arrangements, the nature of the state across multiple levels and a range of government policy objectives and instruments. Brexit also has consequences for political parties and civil society organisations, business and trade unions. Its consequences may differ for generations and classes; ‘races’ and ethnic groups; genders; nations, regions, localities and communities.
