The choice made in the referendum held on 23 June to leave the EU was of enormous significance for the future of the UK, Europe and beyond. As in the run-up to the UK General Election in 2015, KLICE presented a range of theological and political reflections, to enable Christians and others to take a more informed view on the core issues at stake, and to reflect on the outcome. As a charity, KLICE itself did not take an official position on the Referendum (and receives no financial support from the EU) and we shall maintain our neutrality in the Brexit debate and beyond.
Between February and July 2016 we published a short Ethics in Brief Referendum series, and some extended issues of KLICE Comment, written by a range of authors and presenting different viewpoints and opinions. We will occasionally continue to publish, and ink to, material relevant to the Brexit debate.
For an introduction to our 2016 coverage, and an argument for what the debate should be (should have been) about, see What is the EU for? Introducing KLICE's Referendum Coverage - Jonathan Chaplin
