Action Special – Brexit


Date: 19 February 2019

Type: Other

Topic: Action Institute

On March 29, 2019 the UK will become a third country and cease to be a member of the European Union. With less than 45 days to this deadline, huge questions remain around the terms of its departure, or whether it will even happen, amid calls for a second referendum to halt Brexit after two years of tense negotiations.  As of today, the more likely outcome seems to be a no-deal Brexit, since the agreement made by the British PM and European Commission has been rejected by the House of Commons with an historic vote.

With the deadline getting closer, Action Institute provides an overview of the consequences that a No-Deal Brexit, a Brexit with a new deal or a new referendum might have on the UK and the European Union.
