Brexit and Parliament: A Second Capitulation or Sovereignty Regained?

Professor of EU Law, Piet Eeckhout, examines the role of Parliament in the Brexit process after the Supreme Court judgement, arguing that an alternative reading of Article 50 would offer greater scope for parliamentary oversight and, therefore, a more democratic outcome.

Counterpoint and the Open Society European Policy Institute Looking for postgraduate experts

5 February 2013

The Bridges Project is a ground-breaking initiative jointly coordinated by Counterpoint and the Open Society European Policy Institute.

The project aims to reinvigorate policy-making in Europe by making cutting edge research insights available to policy-makers. In particular we are interested in how recent research findings in neuroscience, positive psychology, physics and complexity theory, behavioural economics, psychoanalysis, anthropology and social geography can and should transform the way policy makers understand the public, and how they elaborate and implement policy.

We are seeking two types of contributions:

  1. Literature reviews (2500-3000 words) that cover a specific aspect of your research field and how it should be understood by policy-makers or government more generally. The aim is to have a good survey of the field’s most innovative contributions and thinkers, as well as a sense of how this should influence thinking in policy circles and possible applications. 
  2. Essay form articles (2500-3000 words + bibliography) that demonstrate how vital contributions in your research field have been overlooked in mainstream European policy debates. How would policy, or policy thinking change if these vital contributions were taken on board?

For a full summary of the project and how to apply, please see the
Counterpoint website.
