ESRC The UK in a Changing Europe Initiative Research Coordinator

Lead Research Organisation: King's College London
Department Name: War Studies

Abstract

A first task would be to monitor research on the EU and on EU-UK relations in UK universities and research institutes with a view to identifying what areas are covered and which have been neglected or under-investigated. A series of 9 scoping studies will be commissioned to provide a state of the art survey of social scientific research in crucial areas of EU activity. A second strand of work will involve liaison with researchers and research teams engaged in work on the EU with the aim of encouraging an interchange between teams or individuals working on related questions. Finally, the coordinator will help academics to achieve greater impact for their research through numerous activities intended to promote interaction and the exchange of ideas between academics, policy makers and other stakeholders.

Planned Impact

The project will enhance the impact of social scientific research on the EU, and UK relations with the EU, amongst key use communities. Research findings will be more easily accessible to these communities, and will thus be drawn on more systematically in ongoing public and political debates about the EU.
 
Description As ours is not a properly speaking a research grant, Key Findings are not readily applicable; our primary aim is the dissemination of high quality research and engagement. In this context, we have nevertheless produced findings that are reported here including, for example, the MPs Winter Survey 2016 Key Influencer Tracking Report which was commissioned and shaped by the UK in a Changing Europe and presented findings from the winter 2016 wave of Ipsos MORI's MPS survey. In general- and more important from our vantage point- our research has uncovered and interrogated critical areas of complexity and contestation surrounding the UKs relationship with the EU and disseminated these results to a wide audience. In doing so, we have developed a dynamic and flexible model for the development of research- through our network of fellows and researchers engaged through the Commissioning Fund- and public engagement using diverse platforms and strategies.
Exploitation Route The focus of our project was to disseminate research for use outside the academic world. Having done so engaging with a wide range of groups and stakeholders, we believe that our findings might be used to inform government policy in relation to the decision to leave the European Union; they might be used to inform the strategies of commercial firms and institutions, such as universities, as we leave the European Union; and they might be used to inform political and wider public debate surrounding the process and of leaving the European Union and its consequences. In the academic world, scholars might build on the diverse findings of our research. More significantly, they might build on our example - the model of public facing engagement we have developed - to disseminate their own research and achieve greater public impact.

Description Our project is aimed at the dissemination of high quality research and engagement and it is in these terms that we measure and evaluate our impact. In this context, our findings-the research and expertise of our researchers and our diverse publications- have been used in a wide variety of ways. Members of the government, civil servants, politicians and campaigners have been impacted through the targeted distribution of flagship reports; attendance and participation at our events; briefings given to the Remain and Leave campaigns, the Cabinet Office and major political parties; and evidence presented by our fellows to Parliamentary Committees. We have presented research findings at a number of professional associations including accountants and fund managers. Business groups like PwC and KPMG have received our reports and attended many of our events and report launches. Our findings- broadly defined- are and continue to be used to inform public debate. Our fellows and research are widely cited and used by broadcast, print and digital media outlets. In April, our research was directly used by ITV as the basis for its "Finding the Facts" series on the Referendum. Public events and engagement through new media have led to the direct communication of our research and public engagement with a very broad range of groups including students, schoolchildren, professionals, public sector workers, prisoners, campaigners, activists and members of the public at large. At the majority of our events participants have commented that their view on the referendum and its consequences has been shaped by our input.

Speakers from both sides of the debate presented their cases for remaining or leaving the EU, while experts provided insights into the debate and the implications of different outcomes in 13 parallel panel sessions that took place throughout the day. The keynote speeches were made by Rt Hon Ed Miliband MP (former leader of the Labour Party), Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith MP (former Work and Pensions Secretary) and Professor John Curtice FRSA FRSE FBA (UK in a Changing Europe and University of Strathclyde).

Modern Europe has been a powerhouse of innovation, job creation and connectivity. But with the European Union itself now in a state of crisis, clouds of uncertainty hang over the continent. The legacy of the global financial crisis lingers as the eurozone struggles to survive. The influx of refugees and economic migrants has fuelled the debate on immigration. Terrorism has led to demands for stricter border controls and a more coordinated security strategy. In the midst of these challenges, the UK's status as an EU member state hangs in the balance. The FT Future of Europe Summit was organised a range of views from leaders in business and government on how to address these challenges.

Results and Impact This event, rather close to the referendum itself, aimed to provide information on the potential consequences of the referendum's outcomes. Information was therefore given on the relevance of EU membership and an eventual decision of the UK to withdraw from the EU, mainly answering questions by life and virtual audiences. To start the event, each of the experts gave a short "taster" in the form of a 3 minute statement max - which meant that we had a 15 - 20 minutes introductory "slot". Our chair provided a lively introduction to this, and which lead to direct specific questions to the appropriate expert.

Panel included: Professor Anand Menon, King's College London, specialty in EU membership and the UK, Professor Catherine Barnard, Cambridge University speaking on EU membership and rights of people, Dr Lee McGowan, Queen's University Belfast speaking on EU membership and Northern Ireland, Angus Armstrong, National Institute of Economic and Social Research, will be discussing EU Membership and the economic situation of the UK, Professor Dagmar Schiek, Queen's University Belfast speaking on EU membership and Northern Ireland - legal issues deriving from EU law, and agreements between the UK and Republic of Ireland on Northern Ireland

Results and Impact The media and the use of new communication technologies were a key factor in debate around the Brexit referendum. The link between media, information and political attitudes has been widely explored in the social sciences. Nevertheless, knowledge tends to remain restricted to specific domains such as political economy, political science, and communication & media studies.

The workshop organised by the Department of Economics and Warwick Policy Lab (WPL) sought to narrow this gap by bringing together academics from different backgrounds to discuss the role the media and the provision of information about the EU to the general public, as well as relations between the UK and the EU in the run-up of the Brexit referendum. The workshop was followed by an open lecture about the "100 days of Theresa May's government."

Speakers included: Anna Wambach The School of Geography, Politics and Sociology, Newcastle University, Claudia Zucca VOTEADVICE project, University of Exeter, Alex Dobson Department of Economics, University of Warwick, Sofia Vasilopoulou, Department of Politics, University of York, Carolyn Rowe Aston Centre for Europe, Aston University, Andrew Glencross, University of Stirling, Tatiana Coutto Department of Economics, University of Warwick.
