Media and new technologies in the Brexit referendum

This event is by invitation only

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 trends remain restricted to specific domains such as political economy, political sciences, and communication & media studies. The workshop organised by the Department of Economics and Warwick Policy Lab (WPL) seeks 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 will be followed by an open lecture about the UK-EU Relations under Theresa May's Government.
