Summary/Abstract: The article gives an overview of the key cultural and structural factors behind nationalist populism and the decision to leave the European Union as a result of the referendum staged in Britain in 2016 (Brexit). The article seeks to identify socio-economic and cultural changes that might counter nationalist populism in Britain through a renewed Social Europe, civil society and cosmopolitanism. The paper also considers how a renewed democracy might create the platform for transformative change.
