BREXIT: Sources of Information

Legal Resources

When researching the topic of BREXIT, it is important to understand the legal implications of withdrawal from the European Union (EU) generally, as well as the implications of the United Kingdom (UK)'s withdrawal specifically. The linked resources below come from both the EU and from the UK. Full texts of the Treaty on European Union (TEU) and the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) are provided as well as key materials documenting the negotiations between the UK and the EU, beginning in 2017. In addition, materials from the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS) are linked, that summarize the background and negotiations on BREXIT. Lastly, the texts of the acts authorizing the UK withdrawal from the EU are provided, as well as briefings on Brexit by the UK Parliament, committee reports, and a timeline of the UK parliament's BREXIT votes, among others.
