Chair: Dr Sarah Fine

Recorded on 29 November 2017 at Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

The Brexit debate saw a revival in talk of ‘sovereignty’. But what exactly is it, and why is it so highly prized? What are its essential features and what are its limits? In a globalized world, is sovereignty something modern states can achieve? We will explore this elusive concept, and ask whether it is still a useful concept in the twenty-first century.
