A second Brexit Referendum: how would it work? video

The uncertainties over whether Theresa May can win parliament’s support for her Brexit deal have increased the chances that a further referendum could be called. This raises many questions: Is such a referendum actually possible given the Brexit timetable? How could it be triggered? What options would appear on the ballot paper? How would the referendum be run?

Last month the Unit published a report, The Mechanics of a Further Referendum on Brexit, which examined all these questions in detail. To help inform the current debates, we have prepared a short video, in collaboration with the UCL European Institute, summarising the key conclusions. 

The report is still available too, and can be read here, along with blogposts outlining each section.
