On 12th September, the Finance Network are hosting the award-winning author and academic, Andrew Gamble, who will be discussing his analysis of Brexit and where we go from here.
Brexit. When the UK learned it was going to leave the European Union, ripping apart the political fabric woven with its European partners in the last 40 years, it left a nation in shell shock. Never have so many dials been reset. Never have so many questions over our fundamental rights, responsibilities and relationships arisen. Are we going to be a little Britain, or an international ally of BRIC and America, or simply a super Cayman Island? While we wait for the political establishment to make its mind up, we have the privilege of hearing intelligent insight from one of the UK's leading political economists.
Andrew Gamble is an academic and author. A Professor of Politics at the University of Cambridge, he was awarded the Sir Isaiah Berlin Award for Lifetime Contribution to Political Studies by the PSA in 2005.
Gamble's 2003 book, Between Europe and America, won the W.J.M. Mackenzie prize for the best book published in political science in 2003. He is co-editor (with the former Labour MP Tony Wright) of the academic journal The Political Quarterly, and he also sits on the editorial board of another academic journal, Representation. The main themes of his recent research have been asset-based welfare and 'Anglo-America'. His most recent book, an analysis of the politics of recession and capitalist crises, is entitled The Spectre at the Feast.
The event will be chaired by Young Fabian member, Nadia Islam, and members will have a chance to ask their questions during the interactive Q&A session. If you have any questions, please contact 'FinanceNetowork@youngfabians.org.uk'.
We're looking forward to seeing you there!
