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 links to a selection of analysis and comment on:

  • the exit negotiations, including dispute resolution, Northern Ireland and citizens’ rights
  • the UK’s future relationship with the EU, including the possibilities of a ‘deal or no deal’ scenario, and the impact of Brexit on the rest of the EU

This paper will be updated periodically.
