In the referendum on 23 June 2016, a majority of the UK electorate voted to leave the EU.

UK withdrawal from the EU – usually described as ‘Brexit’ – has been the subject of a great deal of comment in books, journal articles, press reports and blogs.

This paper provides information on and/or links to a selection of analysis and comment on:

  • the EU referendum (for a pre-referendum reading list, see Commons Briefing Paper 7220, Reading list on UK-EU relations 2013-16: reform, renegotiation, withdrawal, 24 June 2016)
  • constitutional and legal issues surrounding UK withdrawal
  • the triggering of Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union (TEU), which will start the withdrawal process
  • the High Court Judgement on Miller v. Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union
  • the role of the UK Parliament in triggering the process and in the negotiations
  • the possibility of a second referendum on a withdrawal agreement
  • issues for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

There is also a list of miscellaneous Library briefing papers and parliamentary committee reports.

This paper will be updated periodically.
