What will the UK’s relationship to other nations mean in a post-Brexit world?
Amidst the ongoing Brexit negotiations, a question mark looms over Britain’s future place in the world. The wish for a post-Brexit ‘global Britain’ has driven the idea of an alliance between Britain and its old Commonwealth colonies to resurface, based on a belief in a special bond shared by English-speaking peoples across the world – dubbed the ‘Anglosphere’ by some, or ‘Empire 2.0’ by critics. Mike Kenny and Nick Pearce argue that while the contemporary idea of the Anglosphere as an alternative to European Union membership is seriously flawed, it is a vital and overlooked part of the complex story that led to the Brexit vote.
Reprogramming the Future
Our entire social system is in urgent need of renewal. Across the political spectrum we need to develop a much clearer account of how we reform and revitalise the three foundations of a liberal society – the state, the market and civil society – while recognising how these systems interact.
The RSA and the University of Bath are partnering on a series of essays and events to interrogate the choices ahead, if we are to design a progressive modern agenda that responds to the rapid changes that have swept through society - and delivers for the common good.
