Constructing Brexit as a Mechanism to Solve Migration Question in the Discourse of British Politicians
Political Science
(Bachelor’s programme)
2018
On June 23, 2016 the UK voted in the referendum on the withdrawal of the country from the European Union (EU). Despite the fact that the results of the referendum sent shock waves in Europe, this outcome was predictable for a number of reasons related to the domestic and foreign policies of the United Kingdom. Among them are the historically developed high level of Euroscepticism and recently increased attention to the migration crisis.

With the help of theories of framing, securitization and social constructivism, and the discourse analysis of the speeches by the British politicians and their reflection in the media, this work examines how Brexit was constructed by British politicians as a mechanism for solving migration problems during the referendum campaign regarding Britain's withdrawal from the European Union.
