[For immediate release: 25 October]


A detailed new report by leading academics and looking at how the UK might withdraw from the EU will be launched at a press briefing at the Institute for Government on Wednesday 2 November.

Brexit and Beyond: a guide to the process of leaving the European Union, a report by The UK in a Changing Europe for the Political Studies Association, unpacks and explains the process by which the UK will leave the European Union.

It investigates the triggering of Article 50 and discusses how the process might unfold, what actors might be involved in the process, and how, and what any longer term deal between the UK and its European partners might look like.

The report comes five months before the deadline Theresa May has announced for the triggering of Article 50. It is a rigorous and authoritative guide to what might transpire during the Brexit negotiations given the nature of British and European politics, the structure of the British state, and the legal frameworks within which both sides must operate.

Contributors include Catherine Barnard, Iain Begg, Damian Chalmers, Sara Hagemann, Joanne Hunt, Michael Keating, Martin Lodge, Anand Menon, Simon Usherwood and Richard Whitman.
