In the wake of the 2016 vote in the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, analyses of the Brexit vote quickly converged on key variables explaining this outcome, in particular socio-economic status and attitudes toward globalization. A year after the Brexit vote, how well do these explanations hold up?
The papers on this panel analyze original data and reinterpret existing data on the Brexit referendum to provide new insight into explaining the Brexit vote. By evaluating the explanatory power of a range of new variables, specifying new models, and considering distinctive contexts, the authors contribute to broader understandings of what underpins arguments in favor of Brexit and what motivates voters to support them.
