The general election of 2019 was called after negotiations over how the UK should leave the European Union became increasingly tortuous. While Brexit may have been the trigger for the election, it was far from being the only issue debated during the campaign. The Centre for Economic Performance has produced 11 briefings covering key issues in the election campaign. These provide impartial, evidence-based analyses of topics and give policy suggestions. The briefings go beyond party manifestos to look at the vital issues that are being overlooked – as well as giving context to what is being discussed.
