Article 50 TEU: Secrets and Lies

In this lecture, UCL Laws Deputy Dean and UCL European Institute Academic Director, Professor Piet Eeckhout, examines how the process of withdrawing from the EU will unfold as the triggering of Article 50 approaches.

Since the Brexit referendum Article 50 has been on everyone’s lips.  Yet what does this short article actually provide for, what are the components and building blocks of the withdrawal process, and how could it unfold?  This lecture, based on a paper written with Dr Eleni Frantziou (Westminster), explores what lies ahead.  It advocates a reading of Article 50 in line with EU constitutional law principles.  There is more to the article than meets the eye, and the lecture will reveal some secrets, and some lies - or 'alternative facts.
