Analysing post-Brexit European Social Problems

A new book, published by London Met academics, is the first text to analyse the social impact Brexit will have on Europe.

Date: 30 May 2017

A new book, due to be published on 1 June 2017, will address the social issues common to Europe.

European Social Problems is the first book to examine social issues in Europe from the perspective of the social sciences. It considers many of these social problems following the UK’s decision to leave the EU. Key topics include:

  • immigration
  • multiculturalism and religion
  • health
  • inequalities
  • education
  • riots and protest
  • drugs and crime
  • sexuality

Edited and led on by Dr Stuart Isaacs, course leader for BA Sociology and Social Policy and BSc Criminology and Sociology, the book is the second in a series of books that uses the social problems perspective to examine British, European and Global Social issues. Explaining this text Dr Isaacs said: “The book directly references the issues that people in both the UK and the rest of Europe will face as we see Brexit unfold.

“This book illustrates that whether we are in or out of the EU many of the UK’s social problems are still related to European wide issues. Therefore any potential solutions to domestic social problems will inevitably need European co-operation to resolve.”

You can get a copy of the book on Amazon or in Waterstones.

The book has been published by Routledge, the world's leading academic publisher in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Dr Isaacs is the co-author of Social Problems: An Introduction, Contemporary Political Theorists in Context and Political Theorists in Context, as well as the sole author of The Politics and Philosophy of Michael Oakeshott, all published by Routledge.
