Britain in Europe (BiE) is an innovative research centre based at Brunel University London. The research centre brings together Brunel academics from a number of disciplines, legal practitioners, politicians, former civil servants, business experts, members of international human rights organisations and other third sector experts from across Britain and Europe.

Britain in Europe members produce original research and influence public policy, offering a platform for evidence-based evaluations of Britain's interactions with the EU and its institutions. The think tank's strengths lie in the area of criminal justice and human rights, and extend to key areas of EU law and European Policy research.

Britain in Europe research benefits from a wide range of dynamic external collaborations, including with Liberty, Justice, the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple, Fair Trials International, the New Europeans, the European Criminal Bar Association, Amnesty International, the Hellenic Criminal Bar Association and others.

BiE develops its main research activity in the UK, but also extends its research initiatives in Brussels and Strasbourg, particularly at the European Parliament, in close collaboration with civil rights organisations and British MEPs active there.

Our aims:

  • To analyse the socio-legal, economic, and political effect of Brexit in the UK and Europe.
  • To provide a research platform that will contribute to the construction of a future relationship between the UK and the European Union.
  • To ensure that the UK and European countries will remain fully aligned on the protection of human rights after Brexit.
