Leaving the European Union, the Union way: A legal analysis of Article 50 TEU (2016:8epa)

Leaving the European Union, the Union way (2016:8epa)

The outcome of the UK referendum on membership of the European Union prompted a considerable interest in the modalities of a member state’s withdrawal from the EU. This new European Policy Analysis examines the specific provisions governing this process, viz. Article 50 in the Treaty on European Union, TEU, and its function in the European integration process.

The publication is in English and is part of SIEPS´ research project The constitutional development of the European Union.
