The Road to Brexit: A Students' Podcast from a Research Seminar

In a podcast, Prof. Ina Habermann and some students of her research seminar “The Road to Brexit” present their findings about the reasons why so many Britons voted to leave the EU.


When on June 23, 2016 the majority of Britons voted ‘Leave’, many people in the UK and all over the world were surprised. Few had foreseen this outcome. People asked: How could it come to this? This was the central issue Prof. Habermann decided to explore in a research seminar at the University of Basel’s English department in the autumn term 2017. The podcast is now online and available to anyone interested.
