Abstract

The choice facing Britain in the EU referendum is best understood, Lee Jones suggests, by using two concepts he has discussed in his work with Shahar Hameiri: ‘the politics of scale’, and state transformation. In a nutshell, the EU emerged through the rescaling of governance to inter-elite networks insulated – by design – from popular control, which lock in anti-democratic and conservative policies. Restoring popular control has to involve leaving the EU and revitalising national democracy in a progressive, internationalist direction.
