After Brexit: Locating the future leaders of psychology in Europe

Burman, J. T. 4-Apr-2018

Research output: Other contribution

It’s quite possible that Brexit’s impact won’t be immediately detectable in quantitative examinations of research output (discussed generally by Burman, in press). Grant money will flow to different institutions, however, and so will top students: Oxford, Cambridge, and University College London will no longer be eligible for EU support. Large multi-institution partnerships will accommodate the political change too. So if we are to predict how these changes will unfold, and prepare ourselves for what’s coming, we need data that can serve as a proxy for these important phenomena that are harder to track.

To my knowledge, no data have yet been collected to directly answer the BPS editor’s question regarding the future of European psychology after Brexit. We must therefore rephrase it so that the extant data can be made relevant. I see two obvious ways to do this; two sub-questions that could stand-in for the original.

First: where are the best non-native English-speakers to be found in Europe? This reflects the practical language constraint. And, second: where are the top European Psychology programs? Thus: my path to “how” is via “where.”
