The European Union seems to be constantly in crisis. Its values are being contested, populists are gaining traction and Brexit continues to cause unease. In this public lecture, Professor Murray will reflect on the crisis of the European ‘project’ and argue that Brexit is as much about nostalgia as about sovereignty. She will evaluate the debate about Europe’s borders as a site of exclusionist narratives and the externalisation of refugee policies.
