EU Referendum Research

Neema Begum, a PhD student at the University of Bristol, is currently recruiting research participants for her investigation into voter behaviour in the 2016 referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union. Please see the message from Neema, below, and respond to her directly if you can support her project.

Voting Behaviour in the 2016 EU Referendum
This research is exploring motivations for voting Remain or Leave in the 2016 EU Referendum. The project pays particular attention to how ethnic and class identity influenced voting choices in the Referendum. The project is interested in what the key issues of the Referendum were for voters and how this influenced the way they voted in the Referendum.

The Principal Investigator of this research is Neema Begum, a PhD Researcher based at the University of Bristol. This research is based on focus group discussions with local communities and quantitative analysis of nationally representative datasets on voting and social attitudes.
The focus group would require 4-5 people who voted the same way in the Referendum and would take place at a mutually convenient time and location. To say thank you for taking part, each participant will be given £10 worth of high street vouchers which can be spent in a wide range of stores.
If you are interested in participating, or can help Neema recruit participants, please contact her on 07561 336176 or at
