The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland leaving the European Union and Euratom represents a major challenge to the EU and its Member States, and has complex economic, financial, social and political implications for the entire Community acquis. The United Kingdom’s exit from the EU, the success of Eurosceptic and populist discourse, the radicalization of public opinion, as well as the persisting differences in the developmental trajectories of EU countries highlight the need to (re-)think the European project in order to provide Member States with a common sense of direction.

UK leaving the European Union takes place in an increasingly complex and challenging international context, and to make things even more complicated the bilateral negotiations meant to deliver an agreement by the end of this year are stalling.
