Department Name: Cardiff Law School

Abstract

ESRC has made substantial investment in Brexit-related research and academic engagement. A flagship, award winning, initiative, the UK in a Changing Europe (UKICE), has established a unique position as a forum and platform for communicating expert analysis with diverse public audiences, work with various media outlets and specialist support for government and civil society organisations. 25 ESRC Brexit Priority Grants are conducting urgent, applied research relevant to the Brexit negotiations in support of UKICE. Well-developed post-Priority Grant plans are in place for research to analyse, think-though and lay longer-term social, economic, spatial, legal and political foundations for 'Governance after Brexit'.
The Leadership Coordination Fellow has the core purpose of maximising the overall value added by the Priority Grants (with UKICE) and Governance after Brexit. Beyond project-specific contributions, their full potential is collective and requires collaboration, cooperation and co-ordination. The Fellow needs experience and skill as an academic leader.
At least for the Priority Grants, the Fellow will work hand-in-glove with UKICE, particularly its Director Prof Anand Menon, Communications Officer, Ben Miller and Office Manager, Pheobe Couzens. UKICE has developed a unique position as an expert and impartial platform for expert input to an often febrile and disputatious debate around Brexit and as a forum for balanced contributions from protagonists. Prof Menon has a distinctively calm, engaging and expert voice on Brexit.
Working with UKICE, the Fellow's role is to facilitate Priority Grant engagement particularly with governments but also with parliaments, the judiciary, civil society organisations and the wider public. As well as operating across the three main branches of government and beyond them to civil society, it needs to function across and connect the UK's nations, regions and localities. Subsequently, the Fellow will play a similar, but more independent role in the Governance after Brexit programme. There will be some scope, at least initially, to continue the partnership with UKICE.
To reach its potential, the Brexit portfolio must draw on diverse academic disciplines and integrate their work effectively. UKICE and the Priority Grants have successfully engendered several inter- and trans-disciplinary research teams. For Governance after Brexit, the range should expand to include stronger elements that draw from such disciplines as geography, sociology, social policy, anthropology, law and/or history.
To maximise the impact of its Brexit-related work, this research portfolio should be connected to other ESRC investments, notably a project 'Between two Unions' on the UK as a and major on-going investments on the economy and public attitudes. A range of centres and investments dealing with such issues as population, migration, civil society, housing and productivity are also making relevant contributions. In addition, connections with research supported by other funders would be valuable.
As well as existing investments, this issues raised by Brexit are reshaping the social science research agenda. The Fellow has a horizon-scanning and scoping role to play in relation to future research priorities, including programmes already being planned in the UK and across Europe. Moreover, if Brexit is a UK process, it can also be thought of as a local instance of a wider set of phenomena, which have had an impact in a number of other societies across the world. New research should address these wider phenomena in their comparative and global contexts.
Finally, Brexit and related developments pose challenges to the social sciences. Some have questioned the credibility of polling research that failed to predict Brexit (just as the economic crash weakened the credibility of economics). Reflection on fundamental social science approaches, concepts and methods will be one element of the Fellow's scoping work.

Planned Impact

Making an impact with academic research is central to the Fellow's role. Its impact aspect will alter as the role's balance changes over time. Initially, coordinating the Brexit Priority Grants to maximising their collective value and link them to research users through UK in a Changing Europe is a priority. That initiative has built a superb, awarding winning communication and engagement platform. I have an established, effective working relationship with its Director (we co-edited a 2016 Brexit 'Political Quarterly' edition). I served as Chair of the UKICE Advisory Group at an earlier period. As Fellow, I would participate actively in the full range of engagement and impact work of the Changing Europe initiative and Priority Grantholders. At least for its initial period, 'Governance after Brexit' could also make use of the 'Changing Europe' platform, but I would also play a more prominent engagement role as its Coordinator.

Governments across the UK are key impact partners in this work, with civil servants in Whitehall, Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh especially important partners. Across the portfolio, maintaining both independence and relationships of mutual trust with a range of policy actors from across the UK is a key requirement for the success of this post. The Fellow may have some scope to mediate among governments and with other interested actors.
The withdrawal legislation and post-Brexit developments will pose significant challenges to Westminster and to the devolved legislatures. New ways of Parliamentary working are likely to develop, probably ad hoc. I would aim to help set those changes in a broader conceptual and constitutional framework, to bolster UK representative democratic practice. The judiciary and legal professions are also priorities for engagement. In practice, post-Brexit, the constitution will change through the interplay of the three branches of government.
Civil society organisations - business, unions and third sector organisations (TSOs) are also important partners. I am well placed to enhance the hitherto somewhat underplayed involvement of TSOs in this ESRC portfolio, with a particular focus on TSOs working on issues of gender and of equalities.
The UK in a Changing Europe has a strong media presence and good record of engagement with wider publics. As well as strengthening work in London, I would deploy the Priority Grants and wider ESRC investments to ensure a good spread of activity across the UK. Engaging audiences and partners outside the UK is an important element of some Priority Grants, to inform the Article 50 negotiations, and may grow in the next phases of 'Changing Europe' activity. It will also be an important element of the Fellow's wider scoping work.

The Fellow will facilitate impact partners' access to outstanding applied research on Brexit, and then to a growing body of new longer term and conceptual work on the wider issues it raises. By sustaining trust relationships with the range of key impact partners, the Fellow will develop capacity to feed their priorities and perspectives into the shaping and framing of new research programmes. This role will emulate, but go beyond the established good practice of involving non-academic partners as co-designers of individual projects. As Brexit, and similar events elsewhere in the world, have also challenged some aspects of social science, these perspectives would also contribute to the Coordinator Fellow's work in scoping fundamental research with potential to reshape key aspects of social science. The nodal and networked coordination position also allows the Fellow potentially to serve as an intermediary between various actors and institutions. There may be potential for the Coordinator to use this portfolio to create private spaces for governments and intergovernmental groups to work through ideas and possibilities for and after Brexit. Other impact partners could be offered similar opportunities.

Description Two aspects of this award need emphasis. First, it is not for a conventional research project. Second, it operates in a context of very high uncertainty. A key aim of the Fellowship is to engender and support curiosity-driven, basic social science concerned with the long-term trends and tendencies associated with Brexit. In the context of high uncertainty - and potential instability in the UK's political scene and governmental arrangements - social science researchers need to negotiate their relationships with key current impact partners with some care. A stream of research focused on basic long-term questions will help in this respect.

The Award's initial key aims have been met. Core objectives over the award's first 27 and 1/2 months were to establish and maintain ways of working and to commission projects for the Governance after Brexit (GaB) programme. We have established an effective collaboration through which in addition to directing GaB, I am Research Director for UKiCE -responsible for its links with the social science academic community, especially ESRC-funded research relevant to Brexit. This pattern is established and working well - equally it requires on-going maintenance and development, especially as the core team at UKiCE has expanded and a new set of 25 Senior Fellows have been appointed. Part of this framework has been the establishment of a pattern of collaboration and co-ordination across the Brexit priority grants established alongside the design of the GaB programme designed. Implementation of its first phase is well under way. After a period of uncertainty, commissioning of its second phase is now well under way. As well as the steps taken to address the award's more specific aims, for example on gender (through a major conference) and civil society organisations (through WISERD and a sibling TLEF project), increasingly, I have bolstered UKiCE capacity in relation to devolution, especially in relation to Wales (supported by ESRC awards Between two Unions and the Welsh Election Survey 2019). In addition, the coordination and supervision of a range of projects - basic research under GaB and other responsively funded ESRC research as well as the applied work of the Priority Grants and Senior Fellows - has allowed me to identify some significant gaps in the pattern of research on Brexit-related topics. One finding here was the identification of a 'gap' in research on 'comfortable leavers' - which generated a successful application for an ESRC General Election 2019 urgency grant to begin to fill this gap.

When the award was made it was unclear whether GaB was a sibling or successor to UKiCE. The original application emphasised that GaB programme and related projects would use UKiCE as their main programme platform for engagement/public communication, so long as UKiCE continued. The strategic decision to extend UKiCE has now been made. Beyond the UKiCE core team, Senior Fellowships, Priority Grants and GaB projects, this research includes relevant ESRC responsive mode grants, other work funded by ESRC and by a range of other academic research funders. For example, I have organised UKiCE-based panels at a range academic conferences of learned societies in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

The next phases of are now well underway for both UKiCE and GaB. UKiCE continues to extend its position as a uniquely successful and ambitious academic unit and platform for public communication, media engagement and policy engagement with governments, legislatures, business and trade unions Here role involves supporting underpinning research for the fellows, both their own projects/teams and from wider research communities. In relation to GaB, as supporting their basic research my role involves drawing out the implications of this research for a wider range of non-academic audiences. This role has involved one to one meetings with each of the research teams, taking part in the advisory board meetings for some projects as well as a day-long workshop attended by 8 of the 10 currently projects, co-hosted by the Leeds Social Science Institute at the University of Leeds in March 2020. Prof Menon also took part in this event. Its focus was on impact and engagement. I am exploring the scope for making a research contribution from GaB - and linking to UKiCE - to draw out lessons about engagement and impact from these significant ESRC investments which work in in a highly sensitive and politically febrile setting.
Exploitation Route A range of actors from the UK's four central governments, its four parliaments/legislatures, local government, political parties, businesses, trade unions, organised civil society, communities, and the media can make use of the research and engagement work funded under GaB and UKiCE. UKiCE has developed a superb platform for the communication of social science research and expertise to a wide range of audiences. As co-ordinator of GaB and in my roles with UKiCE and ESRC, I act as a conduit and broker between these wider audiences and partners - and the research teams. I also seek to link up academic researchers with UKiCE, both so as to disseminate findings, but also to make links to potential partners and audiences of various kinds.

ESRC - and potentially also other research funders - could look to the findings of the existing research projects, as well as the coverage of UKiCE to consider future funding priorities. Several of the GaB innovation grants are coming to an end soon. As well as their substantive findings, many of these projects have thrown up specific implications for future research. For example, Brexit has thrown the UK's internal arrangements - both its multi-national union and pattern of local government and politics - into stark relief. That these issues are at stake was clear from a relatively early stage - witness the successful bid for the Between two Unions grants. The unsettled and extended character of the phase of Brexit up to the UK's formal departure has both dramatised these issues - and mean that the original end-date for Between two Unions grant is before current end date for the transition period. Some research in this space may emerge through the GaB second wave, but significant additional research is needed in this area.

Description When the Fellowship was awarded it had three key dimensions. First the commissioning and coordination of the Governance after Brexit (GaB) Programme, second co-ordination with UK in a Changing Europe (UKiCE), including its 25 Brexit Priority Grants and 25 current Senior Fellows reflected in my role as Research Director of UKiCE, and third horizon scanning work with work with ESRC on the implications of Brexit for research funding and its research portfolio. A supplementary fourth role cuts through these three dimensions - linking other ESRC funded research to GaB and UkiCE, including to the Between two Unions large grant and WISERD research centre on both of which I am a co-investigator - and now to two ESRC grants funded under the general election 2019 urgency grants - the Welsh Election Survey and an addition to the UKiCE core grant for a project on 'Comfortable Leavers'. Informally, these grants - especially the Between two Unions and Welsh Election Survey, but also WISERD, put me in a position to add expertise on devolution, especially in the Welsh context (while Senior Fellows were appointed with specific expertise in Scotland and Northern Ireland, no such appointment was made on Wales) and on organised civil society to the UKiCE portfolio. The 'comfortable leavers' project exemplifies the benefits of my co-ordination role. Oversight of GaB, UKiCE and other ESRC funded work made it clear to me that a considerable and valuable research effort was being put into studying less affluent people and places - often under the rubric of the 'left behind' - but that there was a gap in research on more affluent or 'comfortable' people and places, especially people that support Brexit and places in which a majority voted for it in the referendum. This matter was discussed at the joint advisory group meetings for UkiCE and GaB - and when the opportunity arose, a successful collaborative bid of UKiCE and GaB was made to the ESRC a small project to begin to fill this gap. That project is about to go into the field. Since UKiCE has been extended until April 2022, the dynamic interplay of my fellowship with UKiCE will continue, including the use of UKiCE as the engagement, media and impact platform for GaB. Over the past year, co-ordination of the GaB has grown to take a larger proportion of my time, both in relation to projects currently in the field and the commissioning process for the second round, currently in process. The 25 Brexit Priority Grants commissioned prior to my fellowship are now largely complete - although work continues to flow from them. Although my role in relation to these projects is primarily related to drawing out their research (reflected my on-going guest editing of a special issue of Regional Studies and a symposium in the Journal of Common Market Studies this co-ordination/Research Director for UKiCE. I have worked with a senior fellow and senior researcher from UKiCE to organising an event for ECRs on Brexit and devolution and I have begun working with 2 senior fellows to organising an event of Brexit and devolution in London in June 2020. In some respects, then, it is difficult to disentangle the impact of my role from that of UKiCE more generally, on the one hand, and from the individual projects on the other. The specific contribution of the Fellowship is also difficult to disentangle from other funded research, including but not limited to that supported by ESRC. These issues can also be viewed form the other end - my other funded research very much strengthens my ability to play the co-ordinating role. There is also scope to draw on projects supported by other funders (so far, notably Leverhulme and Nuffield as well as my own work funded by TLEF). Overall, I see my core role as maintaining space and support for basic social science research that sets Brexit and its associated processes in a long-term perspective. Equally, I have taken the lead on several specific initiatives or projects under the broader auspices of UKiCE. Through the TLEF follow up grant, I am also taking a lead on the impact of Brexit on the third sector (also identified as a gap in the application). In consultation with the Kings UKiCE team and the portfolio of research projects I will look to address other priorities (such as those around local government and young people) in the next phases of the Fellowship work. In addition, i have supported impact and engagement work by several Brexit priority grant holders, including in the area of the impacts of Brexit on agriculture, on the UK economy (especially across various regions, jurisdictions and nations), at the Parliaments at Westminster, Holyrood and the National Assembly in Cardiff Bay and with central governments across the UK.

PI Contribution I am PI on a grant from The Legal Education Foundation (TLEF) to support the Civil Society Forum on Brexit - Wales ('the Forum'). This forum is a collaboration between the Cardiff University's Wales Governance Centre and the Wales Council for Voluntary Action - the peak membership organisation for the voluntary sector in Wales. The Forum has also engaged in further collaboration with sibling projects elsewhere in the UK. Its purpose is to inform and support debate among civil society organisation in Wales in relation to Brexit and to support preparation for Brexit related changes that will impact on the sector in Wales (where is it much more heavily exposed to potential loss of EU funding than anywhere else in the UK). The project has developed the following portfolio of activities -described in the impact section below. A follow-up grant has been awarded by TLEF for a collaborative event bringing together projects and partners working on the implications of Brexit for the third sector across various parts of the UK. Its main activity will be an event in Belfast to be held in early May. £21,000 secured from TLEF - Grant Aware dates: 18/12/18 to 30/06/2019. The project's Co-I is Prof Jo Hunt and its researcher/coordinator Charles Whitmore. My involvement in this project has supported and enriched my work on my Governance and Brexit Research Fellowship. The portfolio of ESRC research has not focused much on the implications of Brexit for Civil Society - while TLEF has offered support to a suite of projects in this area. The Fellowship funds 50% of my time - in my view it is critically important that I am able to devote the other 50% of my working time to active engagement in research and research related impact that is relevant to Brexit. My credibility as a research leader depends on it. If I am also able to bring in relevant areas that are not, for whatever reason, significantly covered off by ESRC/UKRI funded projects, that is an addition benefit. The project also builds on relationships developed with colleagues at WCVA in the context of my role as a CI in the WISERD-Civil Society ESRC Centre.
Collaborator Contribution WCVA is a partner in this project. It has provided support for the project researcher and facilitated connections with civil society organisations across Wales. Anna Nicholl - Director of Strategy is the key contact point with WCVA. WCVA Chief Executive Ruth Marks and Director of Operations Phil Fiander have also participated through the Forum.

PI Contribution A key role for my Fellowship is to nurture links between the academic community - included those funded under various initiatives associated UK in a Changing Europe (UKICE) - and that initiative core or hub. UKICE is very strongly oriented to impact and engagement work. Nevertheless, the credibility of the initiative rests on the quality of the academic research that underpins it. Moreover, researchers closely associated with UKICE have been under notably strong pressure to operate in ways that differ sharply in their rhythms from conventional academic life. Finally, partly as a consequence of working at high pressure, these researchers have extremely valuable perspectives and insights for academic research in their fields. I see my role as including the carving out opportunities to bring together researchers and develop publications - especially in high quality refereed journals - for groups of researchers. Following on from an application in a competitive process, I was invited to edit a symposium of the Journal of Common Market Studies JCMS - the leading interdisciplinary journal focused on the study of the EU. We held a symposium at Kings College in London for the four substantive papers to be submitted to JCMS on 27 February 2019.
