EU3D Insights: Europe after Brexit
In this first issue of EU3D Insights, Andrew Duff draws some lessons from Brexit on what kind of polity the EU is and about how the EU should treat its close neighbours in the years to come.
EU3D Insights, 25 November 2019
Andrew Duff draws some lessons from "Britain’s costly, long drawn-out and painful process of leaving in order that the same mistakes are not repeated. We may not yet know quite how or when the UK will finally depart. But we certainly know why it wants to leave. So we may learn from Brexit something more about what kind of a polity is the EU, and about how the EU should treat its close neighbours in the years to come."
