Abstract

This chapter considers how constitutional authority is being ordered and re-ordered within and beyond the United Kingdom. It discusses the many and varied legal relationships and forms that exist both between the EU and its member states, but also internally, within those states, and between their sub-state parts and the EU. In this way, it considers whether existing structures, forms of federalism, federacy, and other legal orderings, and a greater legal imagination, may provide solutions to the problems of Brexit.
