The reality with referendums are that people rely on campaigns and media for the information on Brexit. According to BMG Research for the Electoral Reform Society, “only 22% in their penultimate survey thought they understood what they were voting on “well or very well” (The Guardian). They further report that 34% of voters got their information from BBC, 20% from newspapers, 18% from family members, and 16% from social media. In addition, more of the younger generation based their...

A referendum may seem as an attractive option when attempting to give the people a louder voice. However, referendums are not as democratic as they seem. In addition to the issue of lower participation rates, the main problem of a referendum is misinformation and/or lack of information. According to the NY Times, “voters must make their decisions with relatively little information, forcing them to rely on political messaging”, which can skew peoples’ perspective on the issue. This may have...

The UNESDOC states, “Gender equity means fairness of treatment for men and women according to their respective needs”, while equality means judging people based on qualities other than gender.

One of the greatest impact Brexit will have on the LGBT community is the ability to freely move between EU states, especially with a partner who is not a European citizen. Currently, EU citizens in the LGBT community are able to bring their partners to another EU state because of the “LGBT inclusive” definition of family. After Brexit, the EU seems to want to further improve these policies and make it easier for LGBT peoples to travel. How will the UK help the LGBT community after Brexit? Or...

On Saturday, CNN reports that over 500,000 people came out to the streets to protest against Brexit. Negotiations have been progressing quite slowly, but now 95% of the deal has been settled. Will people’s voice impact Brexit so late into the game? Will democracy prevail in the end?

To ensure that multicultural values are upheld after a highly divisive Brexit, UK must create policies that get “people to bridge their differences” (The Guardian). This may include a formation of policies that ban discrimination based on ethnicity or support to minority/diversity programs. The first suggestion, formation of policies, can be exemplified by the US’s policies. According to the Guardian, “US prohibits discrimination in rental housing unless you have four or fewer units to let”....

Since Brexit has had devastating effects on UK's economy, the UK should create similar trade policies to the EU in order to prevent unnecessary chaos. Specifically with regards to Ireland, the UK should not create a border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland because it would be geographically and financially impossible to build.

Brexit may be anti-multiculturalist and a new wave of English nationalism as a result of increasing antagonistic feelings towards migrants. The 2017 Aurora Humanitarian Index reports that 56% of the people surveyed in the UK believed that ethnic minorities were threatening the local culture, and around 30% believed that many immigrants took more than they gave back to the UK. Furthermore, after the EU referendum, the Independent reports that there have an increase of hate crimes against...

According to the Independent, the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, which restricts discriminatory actions against the LGBT+ community, may not be a part of the UK law post-Brexit. Brexit may hinder the progress towards equality for the LGBT+ community because before, many businesses fired people for not being heterosexual.
