James Meek & Catherine Barnard
Beyond the Backstop
Often described as an Orwell for his times, James Meek has travelled the length and breadth of Britain to talk to farmers, fishermen, healthcare professionals and EU citizens about their lives in the aftermath of the referendum, a journey he chronicles in Dreams of Leaving and Remaining. He’s joined by Professor of European Union Law at the University of Cambridge, Catherine Barnard.
Chaired by David Runciman, Professor of Politics, University of Cambridge, and Festival Patron
