The outcome of the UK referendum on the country’s EU membership sent shockwaves throughout Europe. It also resulted in major changes in British politics. While the new British government is currently engaged in reviewing its options to deliver and manage the UK exit, the other EU member states and institutions have started to formulate a common position on the UK’s aspirations to leave. They have also decided to launch a reflection process concerning the future of the EU. What is the current state of Brexit affairs in the UK? How is the EU27 preparing to address the major setback for European integration and the exit negotiations with the UK? What are the key legal options and challenges of the UK exit?
