Governing England: English identity and institutions in a changing United Kingdom
In 2018 the Carnegie UK Trust supported the publication of Governing England: English identity and institutions in a changing United Kingdom, which provides a cross-disciplinary contribution to the discussion around English identity and governance.
The book examines how England is governed and how the English wish to be governed. Contributions explore England’s relationship with the other nations of the UK, different possible models of regional devolution within England, and the significance of Brexit for the English nation and the future of the UK.
The volume is edited by Professor Michael Kenny, Professor of Public Policy at the University of Cambridge, Akash Paun, Senior Fellow of the Institute for Government, and Professor Iain McLean, a Fellow of the British Academy and Fellow of Nuffield College, Oxford. It brings together contributions from some of the UK’s leading political scientists and historians, including polling expert Sir John Curtice and former Cabinet Minister Professor John Denham.
The publication marks the culmination of Governing England, a two-year British Academy project exploring governance and identity in England supported by the Carnegie UK Trust.
