Brexit: Its Constitutional Consequences for Britain and Europe

The referendum on 23 June on the UK's future membership of the European Union raised many important issues. This special seminar series and briefing papers - organised jointly by the UCL Constitution Unit, UCL European Institute, and UCL School of Public Policy - focused on a crucial subset of these issues: the constitutional consequences that Brexit would have for the UK, for the EU, and for other EU member states.

The seminars brought together leading practitioners and academics from the UK and around Europe to debate the issues. The briefing papers drew on the seminars and other materials to sum up current expert opinion on each issue. Both the seminars and the briefing papers were generously supported by the UK in a Changing Europe project.

The series concluded with a major debate on all aspects of the Brexit question.
