Brexit cross-cuts my areas of research expertise, and I am pursuing different lines of enquiry in respect of it:
•How did leave and remain campaigners use social media, and what effect did this have on the outcome of the referendum?
•What role will social media play in the politics of Brexit negotiations?
•Can social media platforms be used to encourage democratic participation by historically hard-to-reach social groups (e.g., youth and minorities) within the period of negotiations?
•What are the implications of Brexit for issues relevant to minorities and migrants?
•How might Brexit influence nationalist movements in Scotland or Northern Ireland?
•Will Brexit lead to the emergence of new forms of citizenship within the European Union?
I am happy to discuss any of these key issue areas in media interviews and public events.
