As well as being a leading professor in British and European politics, Anand Menon is also one of the most prominent voices on Brexit and the future of the European Union.

Having taught at the universities of Oxford and Birmingham, Menon was later appointed Professor of European Politics and Foreign Affairs at King’s College London. Throughout his tenure, Anand Menon has completed extensive research on the politics and policies of the European Union. 

As the Director of a leading think tank, UK in a Changing Europe, he has run research projects into the policies of the EU, and the impact of these on both Europe and Britain. 

Menon’s book, Brexit and British Politics (October 2017), suggests that Britain’s exit from the European Union was in fact the result of changing opinions and trends that have been growing throughout the last several decades. He makes the case that the implications of Brexit can only be fully understood by placing it in a wider context.

Anand Menon is currently also an Associate Fellow of Chatham House and Senior Associate Member of Nuffield College Oxford. He is known for his in-depth research into European politics and is one of the best regarded analysts of Brexit and its implications.
