About Jens Norrby

I have been a PhD candidate since 2016. My research concerns one of the groups that first pondered on United Kingdom's future beyond the Empire: the British federalists. In the period beginning with the founding of the first federalist organisation in 1894 and ending with the founding of the Commonealth of Nations in 1949, I study the ideas of federalists and federalist organisations on the country's post-imperial options and allies. During a period when United Kingdom went from being the 'workshop of the world' to one political power among many, these questions presented serious challenges to the self-understanding of both the Union as a whole and its individual nations.

Some of my fields of interests are British history, European history, questions of national self-understanding, the decline of the British Empire and Brexit.
