The authoritative source for independent research on UK-EU relations

14 Jun 2017

Role in the World

This project proposes to inform the Brexit negotiations in real time via up-to-date, research-informed knowledge about the EU Member States’ Brexit positions and the Brussels negotiating environment.

The project will track the Brexit negotiating positions and in particular the ‘red lines’ of selected member states (Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy) which during the project lifespan (April 2017 to September 2018) are due to hold national elections.

Second, the project will draw on existing understandings of how ‘Brussels’ (not only the Council of the EU but also European Commission and the European Parliament) typically aggregates national preferences, in order to show the forces at work behind the formation of the EU’s negotiating position following the invoking of Article 50.
