Time: Monday 21st May: 18:00-20:00
Location: The British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AH
Jane Green will introduce research using the British Election Study to explain why British elections are becoming more volatile, how major shocks such as the Global Financial Crisis are having long-term effects on British elections, how perceived economic gains by different groups in British society have influenced support for Brexit, and how party campaigns shape perceptions about immigration.
Sir Roger Jowell, CBE (26 March 1942 - 25 December 2011), was an outstanding British social statistician and academic. He founded Social and Community Planning Research (SCPR) - now NatCen Social Research - and established the European Social Survey (ESS) at City, University of London. He played a leading role in the establishment of several of the UK's leading social surveys, most famously the British Social Attitudes and the British Election Study. Sir Roger also made a major contribution to the development of robust comparative research through both the International Social Survey Programme and the ESS.
