The result of the referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU puts at risk the UK’s world-leading research excellence in the humanities and social sciences. Scholarship and research flourish in long-term stable and inter-connected frameworks that support people, collaboration, resources and regulation. EU membership has provided such frameworks for the humanities and social sciences in the UK, based on: our ability to attract an international talent pool through our open labour market; working and competing with the best in the EU; having a single regulatory framework that we have helped shape in the EU; and, winning increasing EU funding through models of funding not available in the UK.
