ABSTRACT
Brexit, Britain’s decision through a referendum to leave the European Union, represents the single biggest challenge to the integrity of the EU and a major setback to the European project for an ever-closer union. This is wholly unchartered territory for Britain, the EU and their partners in the rest of the world. EU governance scholar Dr Adam Steinhouse, a professor at IÉSEG School of Management in France and former head of European Studies at the UK National School of Government, will explore the meaning of Brexit – the implications for the EU and Britain, what would be entailed in the negotiations and actual separation, what countries outside the EU need to consider when assessing their relations with Britain and Europe, and scenarios going forward.
