Statement on the EU Referendum Result

Message from Professors Craig Calhoun and Julia Black 

"As you will be very well aware, in yesterday’s referendum the UK voted to leave the European Union. While the School maintained a position of institutional neutrality throughout the referendum campaign, this is not the result that the HE sector at large, nor many of us here at LSE, wanted to see.

"I am sure, regardless of your personal position on the UK’s place within the EU, this outcome has left you with many questions."
