Robert Jackson will deconstruct Brexit against the interrelated problems of democracy, sovereignty and legitimacy posed by the attempt to create a would-be democratic “European Federation”.
Robert Jackson was born in South Africa (1946). After Oxford he went into British politics, in which he served as a Member of the first directly elected European Parliament (1979-84) and as an MP (1983-2005), including a time as Minister for Higher Education and Science. He was also a Minister in the Thatcher government. He is a former editor of “The Round Table” and of the Chatham House journal, “International Affairs”. He and his wife (also a former MEP, 1984-2010) are regular visitors to the Cape, where they have a home.
