Abstract
The aim of this paper is to examine the future of Britain and Britishness considering simultaneous challenges from immigration, devolution, and further integration into the EU. These three challenges are discussed from six different perspectives, namely Welsh and Scottish nationalism, English nationalism, Conservative and Labour’s British nationalism, and that of ethnic minorities. I explore whether Britishness has been shared or denied and reinforced or weakened among these different groups. I also explore how these groups justify their position on devolution, European integration, and multiculturalism. This essay eventually focuses on New Labour’s rationales to reshape Britain and reinforce Britishness in terms of a multilevel governance entity, and a combination of pride and interest.
