Report: International Implications of the Brexit Referendum

02.11.2016

The results of the United Kingdom European Union membership referendum became one of the least predictable international developments of the year 2016, along with the coup attempt in Turkey, Donald Trump’s electoral successes and the faltering TTIP negotiations. The significance of Brexit goes far beyond the boundaries of Britain, therefore it is so important to assess its consequences.

Benjamin Wegg-Prosser was one the first British analysts to seriously examine the ways for Britain to quit the EU long before the referendum itself. The models of EU-Britain relations after Brexit became the basis for expert-level and public debates in many countries. 

In this report, the author analyzes the international consequences of Britain’s leaving the EU and offers his view of the future developments.
