About
Join us for this free-to-access webinar discussion and Q&A session with OUP authors Andrew Blick and Peter John!

It's been a turbulent couple of years in the life of British politics. In this webinar, Andrew and Peter, with OUP Senior Publishing Editor Katie Staal, will consider political developments since the British General Election of 2019.

They will explore the impact of two and a half years of a Conservative government, and how other forces (including Brexit and its consequences, and Covid-19) continue to shape the politics of Great Britain and the lives of the people living there.

This webinar is suitable for lecturers and students, and anyone with a general interest in politics!
