Abstract

Analysis abounds of what Brexit means for the UK, how the UK government is handling the withdrawal negotiations, and what the UK’s main political factions want from Brexit. Much less is available, by contrast, on the EU’s approach and position on Brexit. Given the asymmetrical nature of the process, this is unwise. In order to understand how the Brexit process really works, and how it is likely to end up, the EU’s perspective has to be carefully considered.

This paper addresses three questions:

1. What role do the EU institutions play in the withdrawal process? 2. What have been the EU’s strategies in the withdrawal negotiations? 3. What does the EU want from Brexit and will its unity hold?

Keywords: Brexit, European Union, Negotiation
